Clinchfield, Caleb Lewis’s saga of small town hysteria and its consequences, opens the performance series for the 2012 graduating acting class at WAAPA.
As always, it’s an important opportunity for the year’s batch of emerging performers to shine in public.
This production is of particular significance as the first public appearance of the inaugural winner of the Richard Burton Award for New Plays. Prizes are an important incentive in this under-remunerated industry, but the mark of the award, and what Sally Burton is no doubt seeking to foster with it, must surely be works that can be successfully and repeatedly staged in the professional theatre.
