Free Playreading - Siti Rubiyah
CAAP's work in development, Siti Rubiyah by Katrina Irawati Graham will have a one week script development as part of Sydney Theatre Company's Rough Drafts Program. Join us for a free public reading on May 24.
Rough Drafts supports the development of new Australian works by providing artists with an opportunity to experiment and grow their ideas. Writers, directors and theatre makers are given access to a rehearsal space, a paid team of actors or creatives and dramaturgical support. They may use the week and resources to embark on something currently unscripted or they might choose to develop a script that is already complete in draft form. The outcomes vary greatly according to the project.
At the end of the workshop week, we invite you into the development process to have a sneak peak of a work in progress at the free public showing. These showings are an opportunity for the artists to test their ideas in front of an audience... and it’s a chance for you to learn about how new plays are made.
