THURSDAY 6 SEPTEMBER – 7.00 pm
What a grand place to be after dark… the streets of the Miles Historical Village!
NOTE: Dinner Tickets are sold out, but if you missed out… GREAT NEWS! You can still watch the radio play theatre performed, as you can enter the Village to watch the show for $12. Entry to see just the show (without dinner) is at 7.45pm with tickets at the door. Bar available.
Join us for a special theatre production and a hearty country cooked meal under the stars at the village on Thursday evening.
The evening will feature a theatre production in Radio Play style, taking you back in the old days before TV. Back in the 1930’s and 1940’s it was very popular for families to sit around the wireless to listen to dramatised acoustic shows. See and hear a Radio Play come to life, with dialogue, music and sound effects helping you to imagine the characters and story.
Radio Play Synopsis: Life is getting the better of Charlie and Jo, a self-pitying young urban couple who can’t keep up let alone get ahead. In a fit of domestic desperation they decide to grab the cow by its bell and embark upon an ill-conceived and largely loony episode of grand theft bovine. “Duffers”, written by Carolyn Stuart, explores the issue of greed, Larrakinism and the struggle to control ones fate through the shady underworld of domestic criminality.
This event follows the Official Opening of the festival at Dogwood Crossing, Miles Art Gallery from where you will be invited to take a lantern walk or a horse drawn carriage ride to the village whilst being entertained by some local bush balladeers.
There will be a bar operating on the evening. Dinner provided includes a meal, dessert and tea/coffee.
