The Stuarts Point Players return to the stage this November with two one-act comedies, which are sure to get you laughing.
The first half of the Players’ production has just three characters on stage, for the comedy ‘GLASS’. A fatigued matinee idol on the verge of a nervous breakdown comes home one day from his long-running Broadway hit and discovers an audience watching him through the plate glass window of his high-rise apartment. An excellent Twilight Zone-style play.
The second half features six actors in ‘ASYLUM’. This play is set in a mental institution group therapy session. The four patients have adopted the personae of a fairy tale character to cope with the disturbing reality of how and why they were committed. All will be revealed. Or will it?
The plays will open at the South West Rocks School of Arts (Roxy Cinema) on Friday, November 15, and then move to Stuarts Point on Saturday, November 16. On Sunday, November 17, there will be a matinee performance at the Oddfellows Hall in West Kempsey.

Named by folk-blog Timber and Steel as ‘Janis Joplin and Ben Harper’s love-child’, Cass Eager’s mix of raw soul, husky blues and light-hearted ditties are all punctuated with her unique whisky-soaked vocals. Emotive, slightly raspy, at times tender and at times powerful, Cass’ authentic voice is always the driving force of her music.
Internationally renowned but defiantly grassroots, Cass Eager is one of those rare artists that’s mastered everything from the foot-stomping blues to a sensual slow burner. She’s been called ‘one of the best female singers in Australia’ by Richard Glover (ABC), ’the girl with the golden voice’ (Daily Examiner), and Diesel claims ‘she has a voice so sweet she could sing the phone book and you wouldn’t get bored’.
Cass’ music has taken her to some of the world’s most far-flung places. Performing in diverse locations from CBGB’s in NYC to the beachfront huts of Dili has given Eager a depth and richness that comes from experience. She’s done several ‘tours of duty’ entertaining Australian troops, from Egypt to East Timor (with Paul Kelly and Peter Garrett), the Middle East to the Solomon Islands. She’s toured through North America and Canada – alone waith her acoustic guitar; alongside Ash Grunwald; and with US musician Bob Egan (Blue Rodeo; ex-Wilco). Cass also performed for Prince Harry during his Australian visit, and after being invited back for a repeat performance, ended up giving the prince guitar lessons.
Festival of Small Halls is a series of tours that takes the best folk and contemporary acoustic artists performing at two of our country’s largest festivals, and sends them on the road to tiny halls in communities all over Australia.
It is produced by Woodfordia Inc in partnership with many other wonderful Australian festivals, regional partners and great lovers and supporters of folk and contemporary acoustic music.
Performers for the Summer Tour 2020: Cygnet to Illawarra are Scotland's Siobhan Miller and Australia's Jack Carty. Full details are here.
