New dates for ‘Running up a dress’ have now been announced.
We have new dates!
Lismore Theatre Company is greatly relieved to have new dates for Running Up a Dress. This ensemble piece with 10 local women will take to the Rochdale Theatre stage from 18 February 2022 after having been postponed from its original dates.
‘Covid19 restrictions prohibited us from opening in September so rather than open with reduced audience capacity, we decided to postpone until February’, said Director Sharon Brodie. ‘The cast remained committed to this wonderful Australian play so rehearsals continued via Zoom during many weeks of lockdown’
Running Up a Dress, written in 1986 by playwright Suzanne Spunner features numerous monologues and ensemble pieces telling the complex story of mother-daughter relationships through the language of sewing, fabrics and clothing.
Sharon Brodie, who is also President of LTC has collaborated with experienced dance teacher, Deborah Mills to combine music and movement to the script. ‘The choreography enhances the words and adds a greater depth to the scenes’, said Sharon Brodie.
Bookings for Running Up a Dress are open at www.lismoretheatrecompany.org.au There are six performances over two weekends including Sunday matinees from 18-27 February. Tickets are $25 and $20 concession. Rochdale Theatre is fully accessible and has a licensed bar.
