My play Snow on Mars opened last night. I’ll leave the serious reviewing to others, but thanks to the audience who came, laughed, gasped and applauded, and to Gale Edwards (director) Kim Carpenter (producer/designer) and the fabulous hard-working cast and crew from Theatre of Image. No-one can say it’s not a wonderful production to look at.
Thanks too Jamie Williams and Branco Gaica for the photos.
Snow on Mars runs in the Seymour Centre, York Theatre as part of the Sydney Festival until January 16. Bring the kids, and see it if you can!
Phew! Of course we pay no attention to reviews (unless they say nice things; then they’re written by geniuses who really know their stuff), but after all that work by all those people over all that time, it’s a relief to find that we’re loved and appreciated!
STOP STOP PRESS: In the 2012 Sydney Theatre Awards, Snow on Mars was named Best Production for Children, and Kim Carpenter was nominated in the category Best Set Design. The play also won the 2012 Australian Writers Guild AWGIE award as Best Stage Play for Children.
Naturally arts awards and all those ceremonies, acceptance speeches and trophies are meaningless sideshows…unless we win!
