2010 Tell It Like It Isn't (c) A Vaughan

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

I love the way you always carry my handbag wherever we go – my “everything but the kitchen sink” handbag – to the club, to the movies, and back up those two flights of stairs that take twice the time they did in the 80s. You’ve carried it for me like a habit, unasked for […]

Rhys Keir performs Hunger, by Brooke Robinson in the 2010 atyp production of The One Sure Thing

Brooke Robinson on… Hunger

Hunger started with an image of a helium balloon; as it slowly drops to the ground, someone rises and floats away, the two connected as an invisible counterweight. I knew this image took place in a kitchen and that the person floating away was doing so because they had lost a lot of blood. Blood […]

The Wrap Up: Thoughts on the Fresh Ink 2011 National Studio

It’s been almost a month since the 2011 Fresh Ink National Studio. That’s a month without thinking about jumping in the Shoalhaven River, without attending a workshop on playwriting, being cooked for, thinking and talking about monologues, eating lots of dessert and being asked politely “not to tweet that”. Having the critical distance now to […]

You’ll just have to trust that based on the advice I received, my monologue was brilliant.

Last week, I was observing at the Fresh Ink National Studio or Monologue Camp, as I like to call it. It’s hard not to feel pressure to write a monologue at Monologue Camp. Luckily, writers don’t generally travel in packs and so rarely have the means to corner you and challenge you to write something. […]

That is unless you find yourself in the award-winning architecture, unable to remember whether your need to move the lock on the toilet door to the right or to the left to get out. In this situation, several options always […]

“If you’re going to write about death, you’re really writing about life.”

It’s potentially the broadest topic ever: Life, Death and Everything in Between. But at atyp, in a recent Fresh Ink/PlayWriting Australia event, playwrights Jane Bodie, Shôn Dale-Jones, Rita Kalnejais, Phil Spencer and moderator Chris Mead (Artistic Director of PlayWriting Australia) tackled how to take those very deeply personal events and make them into great theatre.

I said “Yes” straight away. After some thought I decided that I wanted to write about my experience with a […]
