Saturday July 13th and Sunday July 14th

Our 18th Annual One-Act Play Festival is planned for mid-July.

Theatre companies from across Victoria will visit the Mountview Theatre to perform their one-act plays, which can be between 20-45 minutes in length. We usally have morning, afternoon and evening sessions, each with 3-4 plays presented.

On Sunday afternoon, our adjudicator, Peter Newling, will announce the winner and runner-up companies, as well as awards for Best Actors, Best Supporting Actors, etc.

The Festival is a great way to see a variety of dramas and comedies in one weekend while enjoying the hospitality of The Mount Players!

Tickets can be purchased at the Box Office on the day.

Friday August 16th - Sunday September 1st (9 performances)

Drama - Family Values by David Williamson, to be directed by David Runnalls.

Roger is a retired High Court judge turning 70. No gifts and no fuss. Quality family time. That’s all he wants from his wife Sue and their three children. Maybe some balloons. It is a party after all.

But the children, Emily, Lisa and Michael have other ideas. Lisa is on a mission to save Saba, a detention centre escapee. All they need are the keys to Dad’s holiday home and they’ll be on their way. Michael has found religion and is now following God’s plan. Emily's marriage has fallen apart with new love found in Noeline, a Border Force boat Commander. A simple family birthday get-together, right?

It’s like your worst family Christmas lunch where deeply held beliefs are pulled apart and long-held resentments resurface. Crackling dialogue, perceptive insight and fierce humour that skewers hypocrisy. Classic Williamson.

Comedy -  Bunch of Amateurs by Ian Hislop and Nick Newman, to be directed by Craig Leanne-Smith.

Keen to boost his flagging career, fading Hollywood action hero Jefferson Steele arrives in England to play King Lear in Stratford -- only to find that this is not the birthplace of the bard, but a sleepy Suffolk village!
