Solo play raises a laugh
Interesting story: Carolyn Freebairn brings the story and
characters to life in Octagon Theatre's The Book Club.
A poignant and light-
hearted comedy will be
brought to life with a
solo performance at the
Carolyn Freebairn will
perform The Book Club
from February 18 to
The play was written
by New Zealand s lead-
ing playwright Roger
It follows the story of a
lawyer s wife who joins a
book club full of odd
characters plus a young,
Director Bill Finn says
the play is wonderfully
insightful and that many
people will be able to
relate to the situations
and characters woven
into the story.
He credits Carolyn for
her solo act and says
very few actors would
attempt this perform-
Carolyn is on the
stage alone for over an
hour and a half, with
only her personality
keeping the audience
happily enthralled as
each situation and com-
plication arises, he says.
Carolyn says The Book
Club has been one of the
highlights of her acting
career since joining the
Society in 1975.
Carolyn has come a
long way from her first
acting role for the
Society -- she played an
applicant in the Chalk
Garden in 1977.
It was a walk-on, say
a couple of lines and
walk-off part. I filled in
the rest of my time doing
props, she says.
The Book Club will be
held at the Octagon
Theatre in Aubrey St
with evening shows on
February 18, 19, 24, 25,
will be held on February
20 and 27.
Tickets are $20 for the
show only, $36 for a
three-course dinner and
complimentary drink in
the evenings or $26 for
the matinee two-course
