Summer Shorts is a trio of tales by Western Australian writers. The short plays “A Dame Remembers”, “The Heist” and “Little Angels” range from comedy to drama, all with different themes running through them.
Written and directed by Bob Charteris, “A Dame Remembers” focuses on ageing actress Dame Cecilia Coleridge who has found roles hard to come by for some time.
“She’s determined to resurrect her career, and to do this, Dame Cecilia is not averse to a lot of coercion and a bit of gentle blackmail,” Charteris said.
“The play is a gentle comedy that shows that you don’t have to just sit back and do very little when getting on in years.”
“An active mind and strong will can fill your days will all kinds of experiences – in this case, Dame Cecilia’s night-time antics shock many of her friends and relations.”
The Heist, written by Shirley Toohey and directed by Michelle Sharp, is set in a Bronx apartment where four ladies have their bridge game interrupted in the most unexpected way.
