You know how some people do disclaimers when they write about an event or product, well that's not me today. I definitely have a connection to this!
The Queensland Theatre Company's next play is 'Brisbane'. It will be on at QPAC from April 11th to May 3rd.
The connection? It was written by my cousin, Matthew Ryan!
The play is about 14 year old Danny Fisher and is set in wartime Brisbane 1942. It uses true stories to tell his tale.
His mum (my cousin) has just organised tickets for my parents. Dad is Matthew's great-uncle and although the play is not about him, he was also a young boy in Brisbane at the same time, sharing similar experiences.
Mum, Dad and I have been to one of Matthew's previous production, Summer Wonderland. We thoroughly enjoyed that one. If it is ever on near you, see it.
This is the link to the new play. I had better not try to steal a photo. I do have a photo of an 11 year old Matthew, but I don't think he'd appreciate that one.
Enjoy the Arts,
