Civic Digest to host conversation with local playwright Vanessa Bates

Newcastle Live -


Vanessa Bates, writer of 2016 Civic Theatre’s Season’s show, Trailer will head to the Civic Digest on Monday June 6 to answer questions, give insights and speak about the development of her script.

A Newcastle local, Vanessa Bates was a recipient of a residency at Cite Internationale des Arts- Paris and a graduate of NIDA Playwrights’ Studio. She will lead the conversation and unpack her experience as a facilitator and writer working working Tantrum Youth Arts.

Trailer was a project developed over three years in partnership with Wyong Shire Council, where Vanessa worked with Director Anna Kerrigan to guide young souls through the creative exploration of their surrounds and of course the beauty of rail travel.

Trailer kicks off at the Civic Theatre Playhouse on Wednesday June 8 with performances at 11am & 8pm. It continues with a nightly performance on Thursday June 9, Friday June 10 and Saturday June 11. Tickets are on sale now, via the Civc Theatre website.
