Maleny Players present ‘The Shake-speare project’

The Maleny Players next production will be ‘The Shakespeare Project’ written and directed by local playwright Andrew Robjohns.

This November marks the 400th anniversary of the printing of  ‘The First Folio’ a large single volume of Shakespeare’s plays.

It has been widely accepted that If this book had not been produced, then more than half of the plays attributed to Shakespeare would have been lost to history. 

While renowned as the greatest writer ever in the English language and the worlds’s pre-eminent dramatist; very little is known of who he was, and the circumstances that led to his amazing outpouring of plays in the 1590’s.

The Maleny Players attempt to solve the mysteries associated with the production of the first folio, along with many of the great questions surrounding the writing of these plays. ‘The Shake-speare Project’ is an original play that will premiere at The Maleny Playhouse on Saturday October 21.

Tickets $30 or $25 for groups bookings of 10+ can be purchased from www.malenyplayers.com  or via trybooking.com/CLJPU, cash sales from Maleny Art Direct.   Performances 7pm Saturday October 21 and 28, and 2pm Sunday October 22 and 29.
