I’m very excited to announce that three of the original radio plays from the Vintage Voices series have been commissioned by the Someone New Theatre Company to be performed as a part of the Theatia Podsie Festival in Geelong. The performances will run from the 4th to the 12th June 2021.
A series of three short plays written by Lisa Semmler. Each of these plays document the hopes, struggles and dreams of young Australians making a life for themselves in rural New South Wales during the hot and dry start of the 20th Century. From a Spanish Flu nurse fighting to save lives in the middle of a global pandemic to Jo, a young girl who just wants to work like her brothers and finally, the characters aboard Mickey Cush’s coach, travelling into the unknown to start a new life.
