New MTC Lawler show announced

Well, I don't totally get it. There's only one show programmed in the Lawler Studio in 2010 but another one's just been announced for October/November this year. My money's on a few more being announced next year as they get confirmed.

Shamelessly ripped from the media release:

"Twenty five years ago Beverley Dunn first took to the stage to celebrate the life of Mary Gilmore. For 12 performances only, Beverley Dunn will once again re-incarnate this iconic Australian woman in The Dame on the Ten Dollar Note from Wednesday 28 October until Saturday 7 November, 2009 at the MTC Theatre, Lawler Studio.

Directed by Bruce Myles, The Dame on the Ten Dollar Note is a one-hour celebration of author, journalist, poet and indomitable activist – Dame Mary Gilmore. The Dame on the Ten Dollar Note is a revelation of the life of one of Australia’s most astonishing women. Drawn from Mary Gilmore’s own words – her prose, her poetry, her newspaper articles, her diaries and letters, Beverley Dunn takes us into a very different Australia, one struggling to find its feet in the world and forge its own personality."
