Yirra Play Club

Virtual Play Reading Club

The Yirra Play Club is a space to read and discuss plays!

We are hosting a series of play reading sessions. Readings will be followed by a discussion of the work.

Participants may contribute to the readings and discussions of plays as much or as little as they like. This is a fun reading and networking opportunity held by Yirra Yaakin for anyone that wants to engage.

Frequency The first Sunday of every month, re-commencing 4 July 2021. The first month, we will host an in-person session at Subiaco Arts Centre. The next month, we will host a virtual session via Zoom. We will continue to alternate between in-person and virtual sessions.
Update | 30 June 2021: Please note that, due to the lockdown in the Perth and Peel regions of WA which commenced 29 June 2021, we have made the decision to cancel our in-person session of Yirra Play Club scheduled to take place on Sunday 4 July 2021.
The following session, scheduled to take place virtually on Sunday 1 August 2021, will go ahead! We hope to see you there. 

Time 2pm start, AWST (When we host our virtual sessions, our Artistic Director, Eva, and Producer, Elinor, will be present in the Zoom room from 1.30pm, so you’re welcome to log in and yarn with them from then!)

Duration Approximately 2 hours

Open to Everyone (capped at 20 participants)
