Because we’re not the types to stop dreaming, we—that is, Sydney-based actor Alison Chambers and American/Sydney transplant playwright/producer Jo Kadlecek—co-founded JOINING THE DOTS THEATRE Company in 2018. It was the culmination of many conversations and theatre experiences over, um, many years in two different countries. In other words, we are a newish theatre company with a history, small but mighty in vision.
We believe theatre brings people together for stimulating conversations, igniting our imaginations and making us better human beings along the way. We go deep but aren’t afraid to laugh; we wander far with our stories, but love staying home as well. We delight at the adventure of the broader creative process, and hope you’ll join us as we explore new and old and yet unknown stories for the stage!
We fell in love with the language and story of Pulitzer Prize winning play, “W;t” (by Margaret Edson) when we read it and knew it’d be our first show. We booked the lovely Noosa Arts Theatre for Dec. 5-8 and recruited a world class director as well as Noosa/Sydney-based actors to fill out this beautiful story as a gift for the Noosa community. We’re so grateful for those of you who joined us on that first venture as we celebrated our new company, provided new opportunities for actors, and raised awareness and research gifts toward ovarian cancer (re: the storyline of “W;t”).
Now, we’re wanting to introduce Sydney audiences to the wit, works and wisdom of writers Dorothy Day, Dorothy Parker and Dorothy L. Sayers through this world premiere of Jo’s play, “Speak . . . easy.” We’d love to have your partnership and support and say a big thanks now for helping us spread the word about this timely new work about conversations and creativity with those unlike ourselves!
