Wesley Enoch in conversation with Nathan Maynard

We were thrilled that both Wesley Enoch, Director of Sydney Festival, and playwright Nathan Maynard took time out from their Festival schedules to talk to friends and supporters of Performing Lines about Nathan’s festival hit The Season, currently on at the Drama Theatre Sydney Opera House.

Their relaxed and lively conversation offered a more personal insight into the development of the play and the story around it, that of mutton bird farming in the Bass Strait of Tasmania and the strong family connections and traditions around it.

A former dancer and artist, this is Nathan’s first play and he acknowledged the ongoing support of producer Annette Downs and the team at Tasmania Performs; the great opportunity to be part of Moogahlin's Yellamundie Festival; and the support offered by the Major Festivals Initiative, including Sydney Festival and Ten Days on the Island.

Our thanks to Nathan and Wesley.
