THE TURQUOISE ELEPHANT – ‘IN THE RAW’ PLAY READING SERIES

Friday 24 March, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEDT

$20

Presented by You’ll Miss the Tide Productions

The inaugural season of In The Raw, a monthly series of staged play readings, continues with the black political farce, The Turquoise Elephant in the Passchendaele Room, Tamworth Town Hall.

Audiences are welcome to B.Y.O drinks and nibbles. There will be live music and a Q&A after the reading.

About the play – Meet Augusta Macquarie: Her excellency, patron of the arts, formidable matriarch, environmental vandal!

Inside her triple-glazed compound, Augusta shields herself from the catastrophic elements, campaigning for the reinstatement of global reliance on fossil fuels. Outside, the world lurches from one environmental cataclysm to the next. Meanwhile, her sister, Olympia, thinks the best way to save endangered species is to eat them. Their heir, Basra, is intent on making a difference – but how? Can you save the world one blog at a time?

Stephen Carleton’s shockingly black, black, black political farce won the 2015 Griffin Award. It’s urgent, contemporary and perilously close to being real.

CAST: Deirdre Burke, Iris Cornwell, Jessi Le Brocq, Grace Mckinnon & Alison Stuart
DIRECTOR: BEN SIMPSON
