WTF Festival 2018

This month Jopuka Productions hosts a NEW Short Play Event on the Coast. The WTF festival features eight short plays from more than 30 emerging writers, directors and local performers. The entertainment includes live music and an upcoming local comedian as MC. A highlight of the event will be the first Central Coast performance of the best new work from this year’s Newcastle Fringe Festival. Specially commissioned by Jopuka Productions, “Because there was fire” is a darkly-comic coming of age story set against the backdrop of an Australian bush fire. On a warm summer night, two teens leave a neighbourhood barbeque and vanish without a trace. Clara is fed up with her suburb and everyone in it. Andrew is the rich new kid in town. Sparks fly when they meet, and they hit the road, looking for adventure, but soon learn escape isn’t so easy, and fires can burn out of control. The play was written Jamie Hornsby, who has been described as one of South Australia’s most exciting new playwrights, and it’s directed by Danielle Brame-Whiting. Performances are at the Youth Arts Warehouse in Donnison Street, Gosford on Friday 20th at 7pm and Saturday 21st at 6:30pm.
