The Hope Fault at WAAPA, 11 to 17 October

My second novel, The Hope Fault, has been adapted for the stage by writer/director Andrew Hale for Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) at Edith Cowan University. It’ll be performed by the entire 18-strong 2nd Year Acting cohort at WAAPA, in a world premiere run from 11 to 17 October 2019.

I’ll be in Perth for the play’s run, and can’t wait to sit in the dark in the audience and watch my novel play out in front of us in this exciting new form.

The Hope Fault at WAAPA

Adapted for the stage and directed by Andrew Hale
Performed by 2nd Year Acting students
Designed, built and crewed by Production and Design students

Iris’s family – her ex-husband with his new wife and baby; her son, and her best friend’s daughter – gather to pack up their holiday house. They are there for one last time, one last weekend, and one last party – but in the course of this weekend, their connections will be affirmed, and their frailties and secrets revealed. Adapted from Tracy Farr’s novel and directed by local actor/writer/director Andrew Hale, The Hope Fault is a story about familial connections and fault lines, and why the debris of a well-lived life matters.

WAAPA in conjunction with the Minderoo Foundation and Fremantle Press proudly presents the premiere of this riveting new Western Australian play.
