Digital Writers’ Festival

A festival completely online is an amazing idea in itself, and the most obvious being a festival of the word – of course since we are writing ’em now. The Digital Writers Festival will explore topics as diverse as writing from abroad, transversing the digital and print divide and writing with chronic illness. There are also online workshops to take part in as well

Where: Online
When: Continues until November 11th

Reefer Madness: The Musical

Inspired by the 1936 anti-marijuana propaganda film of the same name, this musical satire tells a tongue-in-cheek tale of the hysteria caused when clean-cut teenagers fall prey to that horrible, horrible, horrible drug… marijuana.

Composed by Dan Studney and Kevin Murphy (Heathers), this production is directed by Stephen Wheat who has worked with the major works of comedy like Avenue Q & Pippin. A unique production to check out in the serene surrounds of Chapel Off Chapel.

Where: Chapel Off Chapel, Melbourne
When: November 24th – December 4th
