The Bay Theatre Players next play exploration at the The Playhouse will be held at 7pm on Wednesday 20 February where they will be looking at Angela Betzein’s contemporary Australian play “Children of the Black Skirt”, an evocative play which explores history, reconciliation and the power of storytelling. Three lost children discover an abandoned orphanage in the bush and learn a history of Australia through the spirits of children who have lived there, from convict times, through to World War Two, the Stolen Generation and beyond. They are tormented, too, by the Black Skirt, a cruel governess who floats up and down the orphanage corridors wielding enormous scissors. But as the stories of these forgotten children are told their spirits are released, one by one. (Currency Press - Australian Plays .org) Everyone welcome. Supper provided. Great opportunity to touch base with your local community theatre.
