Aaron Lee is a 26-year-old Cairns local, first-time playwright who has put his creativity out there after pouring his “heart and soul into this play”.
True Friends invites the audience into a quirky, fresh but recognisable world in which 2 young women become friends and flourish. The play explores the journey of their friendship and takes regular dives into the unremarkable, often invisible tech we use on a daily basis, without thinking. Characters sing when they want to, and the play builds to a frenetic climax with Aaron inserting a play within a play. Borrowing from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and transforming it into something with his unique spin, Aaron Lee takes the comedy to another level of nautical twinsanity.
The True Friends presentation will showcase scenes from the play, read and performed by a Tropical Arts ensemble cast who have come along to the exploration over 6 weeks. We are bursting to share scenes we love and get some audience feedback. A limited number of seats are available, so bookings are essential – please click “Going” on Tropical Arts Facebook page !
2021 marks the 11th year of the Tropical Arts/ARC partnership. Come along and find out how we are creating pathways into theatre.
