Slow Dating – 18 & 19 November at Cabaret of the Cow

Footprint Theatre’s latest project SLOW DATING by Adam Szudrich and directed by Lis Shelley first appeared in the 2016 Canberra Short+Sweet Play Festival at the Canberra Theatre Centre.

SLOW DATING was selected as a finalist, placing judge’s second in the Week 1 plays and was performed at the Gala Final, where Penelope Hunt was judged runner up Best Actor for the 2016 Festival – congratulations Penny! The script has been a finalist at festivals in USA and New Zealand.

SLOW DATING is a delicious 10 minute monologue featuring ‘Ester’ – a 70-something self-confessed happily married woman who goes to a Speed Dating event for seniors for ‘a little look-see’. Within 24 hours she will make a heart-wrenching decision.

Footprint Theatre will be performing SLOW DATING at the Cabaret of the Cow on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 November 2016 at Candelo Town Hall.

About Us

LEARN Perform The Art Police

Footprint Theatre is a touring community theatre group based around Pambula, in the Bega Valley on the Far South Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

We don’t have a ‘home theatre’ – instead you’ll find us doing street theatre, performing at outdoor events and festivals, doing readings and radio plays or staging theatre performances in country halls or outdoor venues around the south east region of NSW, Australia.

Mentoring and skills development in all aspects of theatre is very important to us and we run regular workshops and school holiday drama schools with local, regional and interstate tutors.

We love collaborating with other artists, other theatre groups, writers, musicians, choreographers, technicians and community organisations to make great theatre.

Are you:

  • A beginner willing to have a go?
  • A theatre practitioner willing to share your expertise?
  • An event organiser looking for a customised performance event?
  • A playwright looking for a group to workshop your play?
  • A performer or group touring in our area who needs local promotion, box office, technical or front of house crew?
