"SMS Mess"

SMS Mess is a short, one-woman show that explores the pitfalls of text messaging. Using comedy to highlight what happens when text messaging goes wrong, the play is about Kate’s journey of realisation as she finds there is perhaps a better way to communicate when playing the dating game. SMS Mess is ideal for an actress who is looking to showcase herself with a quirky monologue. It requires only a few props and a minimal set.

"Reality Matters"
Reality Matters has been written to be performed almost anywhere, requiring no set – just the two actors on stage. It’s a slightly surreal piece, as one character is forced to question his own perception of reality when an enigmatic character starts to strip away his many masks, forcing him to think outside the square for a moment. The piece is left open-ended as to whether the events occur for real or in the main character’s mind.

"King Bling"
King Bling is designed for a young adult/teenage audience, highlighting the message of how to manage their money. Given the subject matter, King Bling has been written with an urban edge in a hip-hop context, to capture their attention, matching education with entertainment. Other quirky characters are included, also providing occasional moments of comedy. It’s envisioned this play easily be done on a standard stage but also a school gymnasium floor, almost as if it’s done in the round – it has been written so the director can freely adapt the piece to wherever it’s being staged.

"Appetite For Destruction"
Appetite for Destruction is an almost one-man piece about the character’s inner turmoil over his weight. Yet he is not fat – he is thin by most people’s standards. But he used to be fat… and this has caused major dilemmas in his mind down the track, as he fights all the desires to eat while trying to live up to some impossible ideal male body. The audience is privy to what goes on in his mind and this is embellished by a chorus of four that occasionally interacts with the main character.

"The Bonza Land of Oz"
The Bonza Land of Oz is a play designed to give children acting experience while highlighting that other cultures are embraced in Australia with different aspects becoming part of our way of life, whether it’s some of their cuisine, fashion or cultural event. A short, quirky play, it has elements of humour and has been written with no set in mind, allowing it to be performed in most environments. But directors can add set dressing if they wish, depending on the space, cast and budget available.

"Pickles"
Pickles follows the story of a family so wrapped up in their day-to-day lives they don’t know what hidden dangers may be lying in wait from others in their street.
It's an opportunity for actors to play five different roles in the same script, challenging them to convey different characterisations, including a small boy, elderly lady, emo teenager, bored housewife and frustrated husband.
With rapid character changes in its short timeframe, Pickles is a script that goes for broke in delivering something actors can really sink their teeth into.

Travis Hooper:
Travis got involved with writing when approached to be involved with the 'punching' up of another script that contains a local comedic slant for the Goldfields Repertory Club's Christmas Show and it all snowballed from there. After working on another two scripts with a couple of friends,WP Bahd was born and together wrote several variety and hammed up Christmas Shows thereafter. Travis then wrote two Christmas shows by himself and then decided to look at and move into a more structured and serious look at playwrighting.
Travis first became involved with theatre in 1994 after discovering theatre sports and then found himself a regular peformer at the Goldfields Repertory Club from 1997 as an actor, director, committee member, president and major contributor to the club and the Goldfields city. Travis even found himself fullfilling a role in a touring professional production that visited Kalgoorlie after one of the actors became ill and was highly commended.

by Travis Hooper and William Jones
Each person’s life is a journey in which they search for the warmth and love that only comes from human companionship, except Roger.

Grumpy misanthrope Roger Moss, his sister, his best friend and the girl of his best friend’s dreams on a Friday night beyond their wildest imaginings. A Friday night, out of the house… This fast paced modern comedy relies as much on its physicality as it does on its snappy dialogue between the characters.

C. Aspden Pomfret
C. Aspden Pomfret:
It would not be inaccurate to call C. Aspden Pomfret a late starter.
Extremely self-critical of his work, only considerable pressure from friends compelled him to submit a one-act play to Fremantle's Pocket Theatre as recently as 2005.
The submission Mona was immediately accepted and well received by the public. A year later, representing Darlington Theatre Players at Marloo Theatre in the I.T.A.'s DramaFest, his one-act play Sex Toys earned him the Adjudicator's Certificate for Inspired Playwriting. He writes for both stage and screen.

Accolades:

  • 2007 shortlisted and commended in national Tod Hunter LIterary Award for "Day of the Moribund.

"Death Warmed Up"
Set in the memorials office of the local cemetery the play looks at how the staff deal with death. From a somber beginning Death Warmed Up becomes  a black comedy of unexpected proportions.  The staff reactions to the unusual way people want to be remembered open up entrepreneurial opportunities for a cash strapped cemetery.

Mark Kont:
Mark was born in Perth, Western Australia, more years ago that he cares to remember. Having been active in theatre for more than twenty years, it is not surprising that Mark would turn his hand to writing. He has an extensive resume as both an actor and a director and this experience shows in his scripts, which are eminently playable. We hope to have more of his work in our catalogue in the near future.  In the meantime we offer “Scheherazade”, written to showcase the talents of a bellydance troupe (but can be adapted as a musical), which has proven popular with many audiences.

"Scheherazade"
Based on ancient Persian myth and legends.  Many of the tales were included in, or through time have become attached to the tale of Scheherazade, which has enthralled and inspired mankind through the past millennium. Scheherazade ignores the well known stories of Aladdin and Sinbad and humorously portrays some of the lesser known tales attached to this legendary story, incorporating a comical modern flair.
Scheherazade is the tale of a woman trying to melt the heart of a king. The Shah has lost at love after discovering his wife’s infidelity and orders her death. The powerful Shah enjoys various marriages thereafter and each wife’s fate is sealed to the same conclusion the following morning after their wedding night, unless she can prove that she will remain forever faithful. Scheherazade has devised a clever plan to intrigue her new husband, so that she may prove her love and loyalty to her king and bring an end to the ruler’s suffering to all womankind.

"One Night Stand Off"
One Night Stand Off is a comedy about singles and social graces after a night that went so right goes so wrong the next morning. This comedy revolves around two characters, Rachel and Greg, who after a night out on the town wake up together, much to the surprise of both. An awkward situation at the best of times, made all the more awkward as details from the previous night slowly filter back to them.

"There's a War on You Know"
 It is 1941 and at St Cecilia’s School  for Young Ladies in a coastal town in WA everyone is being affected by the war.  When Japan attacks Pearl Harbour and then Malaya and Singapore the authorities decide it’s time for action. Not only will air-raid shelters have to be built on the tennis courts, but the highlight of the coming school year “The Mikado” must be cancelled. (Can’t possibly have a Japanese musical!). This causes great dismay. In the meantime the local VDC (“Dad’s Army”) begin to meet at the school after hours.  The interaction of this keen but somewhat bumbling group, some inquisitive senior students and the school’s attempts to resurrect the Mikado under a different name provide the high points of the play.

"A Characteristic Quest"

One wild and stormy night, back in medieval times, Farsight the Blind Lookout of Camelittle is approached by a well spoken stranger, wishing to seek shelter from the storm.  Camelittle’s knights of the Coffee Table, led by Sir Frederick the Fearless are planning to go on a quest.

With every knight having their own characteristic, they wander the countryside and meet a family of unusual brothers and stumble upon the Sisters of Celibacy. The knights defend the ladies against a band of marauding Welsh invaders.

Accompanied by wonderful original catchy songs, this show was written with a theatre restaurant crowd in mind.   Backing tracks provided with hire package, as well as a sample vocal cd.

This show package contains a full backing cd for performances.
