What's On This Week: November13
December in Melbourne without the Speigeltent is a bit strange, but it gives us time to see other things.
Friday 13 Novemer ONLY
MTC, Lawler Studio
A playreading of Declan Greene's latest, commissioned by the MTC's Young and Emerging Artists program with Anne Browning, Georgina Capper, Francis Greenslade and Peter Houghton. What a cast!
And it was terrific! Dec is fearless, but his absurd (and Absurd) content always comes from and returns to the most delicate observation of our lives. Who else could have every women (and most of the men) in the audience empathising with a gelatinous blob and a swamp woman.
My Darling Patricia
Malthouse commissed this one, which runs until 29 November.
Finishes on Sunday 15 November.
If you rightly love how Yvonne Virsik directs.
Diane Peters Trio

Short and Sweet
Chapel on Chapel
The annual short play festival has moved venues, but there's still three weeks of short plays. Some will be crap, some will be brilliant.
Mikelangelo and the Tin Star
Order of Melbourne
Friday 20 December
I haven't seen Mikelangelo's new posse, but how could they not be great?
