The Caffeine Wars

Devonport Showcase Sundays

A Reading, Produced by the Devonport Theatre Month Group

Four strangers walk into a bar.  A coffee bar. They share a high counter. They’ve been doing this every morning for ten years. They begin sharing secrets they haven’t told their families. They evolve into a family of sorts themselves. What secrets will they begin keeping from each other?

Play readings are the seedbed of new drama. The actors have a day’s rehearsal. They go onstage still holding their scripts, and without benefit of elaborate sets, or lighting,  But readings have  action, and the excitement of a first performance. Out in the audience, the city’s dramaturges will be watching to see what breakthrough drama may surface here, worth selection for the professional stage.

Devonport Showcase Sundays also include The Lost Poet by Geoff Chapple (Sept 16) and Blood or Water by Margot McRae (23 Sept).


Sun 9 Sep 4.00pm Victoria Theatre Devonport
