Well, Tuesday night is bringing rain and wind in Perth. It’s also bringing the April – July season of shows at The Blue Room Theatre for 2016.

This season is a strong one, kicking off with Renegade Productions’ new play, Selkie. Exploring themes of mythical creatures, domestic oppression, and cultural exploitation, it’s directed by the wonderful Joe Lui and written by the Queen of storytelling, Finn O’Brannigain.

O’Brannigain was the first guest artist of the Blue Room’s latest storytelling initiative, The Good Play Club. Along with Black Swan Theatre Company Associate Director, Jeffrey Jay FowlerThe Good Play Club is a fortnightly gathering of artists offering a chance to read a different play from the canon of great theatrical works –  followed by a guided conversation lead by Fowler and an invited guest artist.

Starting on the 19th April, The Mars Project looks to unravel the absurdities of our Me-First age. The award-winning team who brought you Great White now present a story about chasing your dreams – whatever it takes.

With the wind howling outside and the rain trickling down (it is Perth after all!) The Blue Room is the perfect place to snuggle up with a beer and a hot toastie, check out a show, or listen to the great plays being read by the cream of Perth’s talent.
