ABC stuff May 15: Shitfaced Shakespearean shenanigans and other theatre gossip

It's back!  After a couple of weeks off for the Commonwealth Games and various other things more pressing than writing a blog read by two people, three small terrier-mixes and a potted palm, here's a rundown of all the theatre-related delights I shared with Inga on ABC Capricornia this week:

Allsorts does Macbeth

This is on Saturday, and I'm looking forward to it immensely. Loosely inspired by Social Shakespeare, this event takes the Allsorts open-access philosophy of no auditions or rehearsals and takes on theatre rather than our usual mix of music, poetry and stand up comedy.  If you want a role, you've got one.  We'll give you a script, introduce you to the rest of the cast... and off we go.  There's no pressure to act well or get your Elizabethan pronunciation right, just a night of having fun with a story.

If you'd like to be part of it:
