Play Readings


Peridot regularly holds readings of upcoming plays shortly before auditions.  We also hold a number of social play readings during the year, looking at works of both local playwrights and established names.  All are welcome  - supper provided!

Alison Knight hosts our readings. Please let her know you are coming, to assist catering supper, on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please note that directors of upcoming productions do not generally attend readings. Any enquiries about the actual auditions or production should be addressed to the director concerned rather than Alison.


Upcoming Play Readings

You are cordially invited to join us for play readings in the theatre foyer. Here is a list of what is coming up: 

  • Social Play Reading for 'The Haunting of Cathryn Chase' by Joe Fairhurst.

Come join us on Wednesday August 30th, 7:15 PM for a 7:30 start. This play is a two-act version of Joe's award winning one act play 'The Killings at Newhaven' performed at Peridot in 2009. It gives a more comprehensive presentation of the harrowing true story that Joe uncovered while investigating the deaths of two boys at a children's home on Phillip Island. All are welcome and Joe will be more than happy to answer your questions over supper.

Keep your eye out for more details and other planned events.
