‘Your Stories’ a performance in Frankston

We’ve just had a wonderful night performing at Cube37 in Frankston. It was great to return to the Mornington Peninsula/ Bayside area again this year and hear some more community stories. We heard about a courageous fat cat stuck in a roof for four days; a writer and the story that literally exploded from her page; an ex-firefighter who found himself protecting his parents and their property on Black Saturday; a mother carried to hospital by a paramedic and a dog-catcher; and a skilled Chinese migrant struggling to pass Australia’s immigration tests. A night of great variety – full of humour, heart and humanity.

The comments below are some of the responses from the audience survey forms.

    I wasn't sure what to expect but love all aspects/genres of theatre. I was amazed by the stories & how the actors responded with deep emotion as well as the playback aspect. Much to think about.

    Interesting. Good concept. Liked the longer stories best. Some sort of icebreaker activity would be good.

    Wonderful. Can only improve with audience – players were spot on, and audience was also fun. Would have liked a little grit – politics perhaps/ immigration just opened the can… was important to warm up with "weather", but maybe too long, not sure (so good!)

    What did you like the most? – The listening ability.
    What could have been better? – Going and trusting intuition without apology.

    Being 'warm' – awesome was just 'me'. Captured the whole thing, it was great.

    Fireman – the calling. Teary & moved by a story I had forgotten, a chance shirt opened it up!

    Funny, Intelligent, Entertaining

    Fantastic! Actors, conductor & musicians were all incredible! Loved the fireman's story 🙂
