A Sleep of Prisoners
Mar 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Trapped in the ruins of a war-locked Cathedral, four English soldiers bed down for the night and dream of life and death.

Christopher Fry’s lyrical meditation on life, death, violence and purgatory was originally commissioned as part of the Festival of Britain, and opened at St Thomas’ church in Regent Street, London in May 1951 and broadcast live by the BBC in December of that year.

10 years later, the play was performed at St George’s Cathedral, Perth, (broadcast live by the ABC) in February and then at St John’s Cathedral, Brisbane, in March.

Join us for this special event – a staged reading of a stunning allegorical treatment of humankind’s spiritual relationship with faith and his fellow man. In this 60th Anniversary of its Australian premiere, it will be performed concurrently with a staged reading at St John’s Cathedral in Brisbane – a symbolic reaching of hands across the nation.

Dear Heart @ Burt Memorial Hall, 38a St Georges Terrace, Perth
Mar 18 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Written and Directed by Jenny Davis.
Featuring Rebecca Davis, Stuart Halusz, Alinta Carroll, Craig Skelton

Based on her aunt’s WWII letters, Dear Heart, by Jenny Davis, is a moving true story of a young couple separated by thousands of miles and a barbed wire fence.

Wynne Brooks wrote dozens of letters to her missing RAF husband who was a prisoner of war in Java. This concert version of Jenny’s very popular play and book, includes music of the era and is a tribute both to young lovers separated by world events and to women waiting at home for news.
