SHOWBIZ: Drama School – a play


Pansy Productions presents Drama School: a play from February 3-6 at the MC Showroom, Prahran.
Written and directed by Alistair Ward, the play asks what happens when one of the most prestigious acting schools in the world decides that their students need to compete to stay in the program.
Drama School: a play gives an insight into the lives of aspiring actors vying to succeed within a competitive and cut-throat industry, trying to keep their dreams alive.
With a diverse cast exploring healthy male friendships, queer relationships and mental health struggles, these twenty-somethings are on their path to learning that it’s okay to ask for help in a world that has you competing with your peers.
Despite all the current COVID challenges, Pansy Productions’ Alistair Ward is excited that his latest play is set to premiere on Thursday (Feb. 3).
Ward said: “Whilst it would be easy to cancel, I have watched the arts world disappear over the past two years and its impacts felt amongst all artists, especially emerging and independent artists. Working as an actor is a dream and a passion I have held for many years, and I will not give up on this important industry or the ability to provide opportunities for other artists who share my dream.
“With some of our actors having recently suffered COVID, we have been adapting our rehearsals to meet the demands. I can assure audiences that when they turn up, we’ll be there to deliver the best show possible.”.
Dates: February 3-6
Times: 6.30pm, and 3.00pm matinee (Sunday 6 Feb), 70 mins. No intermission.
