Chapel Off Chapel
5 November 2017
Mathew Frank and Dean Bryant were the first Australian writing duo to have a piece performed Off-Broadway (Prodigal). As well as being counted amongst our country's most lauded and celebrated directors and musical directors the pair have written four musicals (Prodigal, Once We Lived Here, Virgins, The Silver Donkey), numerous educational shows and many highly successful cabarets.
The Songbook Series ended 2016 by featuring the music of Nick Enright, and is an opportunity for us to shine the spotlight on some of Australia's more prolific writers on an in-depth level. Join us on the 5th of November as we celebrate the songbook of two of Australia's brightest theatrical lights.
