Join us for this Pulitzer Prize nominated play starring Travis Hennessy, Georgia Heiniger, Mason Bennett, Sakura Walker, Mitchell Langley, Jasper Tabuyo and Delia Breen, directed by Georgie Todman.
The New York Times says it’s a “whip-smart satire of fear and loathing in a beleaguered media industry under siege,” and shows “the cannibal culture cycles that grip and warps attention these days,”
What playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins says about society, the media and how we package celebrity and tragedy is as spot-on as it is infuriating” —The New York Post.
Three River Theatre and IO Performance are thrilled to announce we will be presenting 'Gloria' by Branden Jacobs-Jenkins in our 2021 season. From the 5-8th of May 2021, 'Gloria', directed by Georgie Todman, with be at IO HQ on Cimitiere street. Tonight was the first read through with our 2021 cast and we are excited to work over the summer and bring this killer exploration of ambition and identity to Tasmanian audiences.

And finally here is a link below to another wonderful article by Stan Gottschalk - taking us back to the farcical delight that was Noises Off.
Greetings from Three River Theatre! We are encouraged by the easing of COVID-19 restrictions but we are aware that it will still take some time for theatres to return to 'business as usual' (whatever that will look like!). Recently, the Committee of Three River Theatre made the difficult decision to postpone our major production of Gloria until early next year and we will update you when we have more details. Our proposed production of the classic American play Of Mice and Men will also proceed in November 2021.
We are planning to hold a playreading in November at the Earl Arts Centre--we will be announcing the date for this soon, so stay tuned!
In the meantime, with thanks to Stan Gottschalk, our newsletters will feature memories from the Three River Theatre archive, starting today with the production of Sleuth in 1989.
Thank you for your continuing support at this difficult time--we are looking forward to getting back into the swing of things with rehearsals, productions, meetings and all the joys and challenges of community theatre. Stay well and we'll keep in touch!
Three River Theatre
Three River Theatre will be suspending its 2020 programme - during these challenging times. This means that we will not be proceeding with our AGM, and will be postponing playreadings until further notice. Our scheduled production of Gloria in June will also be postponed.
This has been a very difficult decision to make but in light of community concerns regarding the spread of COVID-19 it seems that we should play our part in limiting social contact or occasions of large crowd gatherings for the time being.
We would like to thank the production team of Gloria for their work on the production thus far, and IO Performance for their generosity and flexibility in agreeing to work with us again. We look forward to reigniting that association on the other side of this hiatus.
It is a privilege being part of the Three River Theatre family and we hope that we will continue to enjoy your support during this difficult time--which, of course is especially difficult for the performing arts sector. Please email President Cameron Hindrum if you have any queries regarding our decision.
In the meantime, in whatever small way you can manage, please continue to support, promote and participate in your local arts scene.
Very Best Wishes,
the Three River Committee.
