The Forgetting of Wisdom, a collective of some of Brisbane’s finest and most experienced senior actors, will present separate rehearsed readings of two plays by playwright Lorna Bol, who finds humour in unexpected and everyday places.
Lorna only started writing plays at the age of 55 and is now 84, and all actors range from 60 upwards. This is where well-polished theatrical experience shines!
I Don’t Want to Die in Melbourne played to critical acclaim when first performed in 2006. It is centred on the lives of two women, Shirl and Nettie, who have been life-long friends and neighbours, and who both don’t have ‘long to go’. Whilst the family of the two women organise for Shirl to go to a daughter in Melbourne and Nettie to go into a nursing home ‘for their own good’, Nettie and Shirl take matters into their own hands. This skilfully written play is filled with funny, thought- provoking and poignant moments.
This will be followed by Lorna’s latest play, the humorous Journey to Milan, where the central character Jess still has conversations (often difficult) with her deceased husband, Tom. Her sisters never approved of Tom, despite having less than ideal marriages themselves, and now they are attempting to pressure Jess into living her life as they see best, by selling her house and taking an overseas trip. Jess is moving on in her own way, with the help of a secret weapon which her sisters aren’t expecting...
These plays give great insights into the ‘golden years’ and if you are in this age groups you will love these stories.
After the performance there will be an opportunity to meet the cast.

Seniors/Pensioners $15, Adults $20, Groups of 10+ Seniors/Pensioners $13
