In the far away village of Gilthrum news of a plague arrives with the post. Seela must stop her fellow villagers from turning on the Postman when evidence suggests forged letters. As the townsfolk become increasingly paranoid, Seela learns how far they will go to protect their comfortable lives and dark secrets.

BACKGROUND
The first draft of Post A New Musical was performed as a staged reading in 2013 at Canberra College ACT. Since this initial production, the script has seen some major changes and continues to be workshopped. This 2019 production features a full cast and is an opportunity to present the show to potential sponsors, producers as well as the general public.

DATES
23rd – 26th January 2019 @ The MC Showroom in Prahran VIC 3181

THE FUND
Our goal is to raise $10,000 to cover our budget (see breakdown below). Our project involves over 25 creatives who are donating their time to grow and stage this new work of Australian theatre. As a developing piece, it is important to us that we offer each of them an honorarium for their contribution as established and emerging artists.
