Yirra Play Club

Virtual Play Reading Club

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


We are hosting a series of play reading sessions. Each session will be facilitated by a different member of the Club, who will pick a play and run a reading of it. 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.

The Yirra Play Club will be an ongoing project for the foreseeable future. We aim to expand it nationally and even internationally as we establish healthy and appropriate ways to connect as restrictions ease.


Frequency Fortnightly on Wednesdays

Time 6pm start, AWST (our Artistic Director, Eva, and Producer, Elinor, will be hanging out in the Zoom room from 5.30pm each fortnight, so you’re welcome to log in and yarn with them from then)

Duration Approximately 2 hours

Open to Everyone (capped at 20 participants)
