The Street Theatre would like to invite you to a first showing of COLD LIGHT.
Novelist Frank Moorhouse loves Canberra. He is the author of the critically acclaimed novel COLD LIGHT
set in 1950’s Canberra and featuring one of Australia’s greatest fictional characters Edith Campbell Berry.
Frank has never had a novel adapted for the stage but in 2012 Canberra’s The Street Theatre optioned
the rights to the Edith Campbell Trilogy and award-winning playwright, Alana Valentine, accepted the
commission from The Street and has adapted the work to first draft stage.
Canberra audiences are invited to the first showing of the first draft of this adaptation of COLD LIGHT
and also to a discussion post-read with novelist Frank Moorhouse, playwright Alana Valentine, director
Caroline Stacey, and the cast.
By sharing your thoughts with the creative team you will assist us
progress the work to production-ready stage.
Cast includes: Raoul Craemer, Craig Higgs, Soren Jensen, Emma Strand, William Zappa
