5pound Theatre will see Richmond’s The Owl and the Pussycat transformed into Australia’s only working repertory theatre for the next five weeks.

The short season will see five different directors, five different designers and a group of five actors rehearse, produce and present five very different shows.

5pound’s artistic director Jason Cavanagh says of the cracking pace of the project is challenging the theatre makers.

“It is our belief that very quickly pretence and preciousness is lost, barriers put up and broken down, endurance and concentration levels challenged. But above all it gives all those involved – actors and audience alike, an everlasting appreciation for the term ‘the show must go on!’”

Week 1: November 13 till November 16 ‘Noises Off’ by Michael Frayne, Directed by Jason Cavanagh

Week 2: November 20 till November 23 ‘Because of Reasons’ by Robert Reid, Directed by Petra Kalive

Week 3: November 26 till November 31 ‘Gilbert and Sullivan Cabaret Review’ Directed by Fiona Scott-Norman

Week 4: December 3 till December 7 ‘The Tempest’ by William Shakespeare, Directed by Daniel Lammin

Week 5: December 11 till December 14 ‘Sex Diary of an Infidel’ by Michael Gurr, Directed by Marcel Dorney

The actors partaking in the madness this year are Tim Wotherspoon, Freya Pragt, Brendan Hawke, Lelda Kapsis and Keith Brockett.
