Backstage photos from “This Rose Has Thorns” in Australia

Finally got around to downloading photos from my OTHER camera that I took to Australia to see the premiere of my play THIS ROSE HAS THORNS.

The cast and crew . . . and a visiting playwright.

Director John Smith talks to the cast.

This was one of the most amazing sights I’ve seen: The cast gathers before the show for a pre-show rally, led by actor Nick Sidari (somewhere in the center of this scrum).

Lots more backstage photos here.

Photos from “This Rose Has Thorns” in Australia

My full-length script THIS ROSE HAS THORNS had its world premiere April 5-7 in Melbourne, Australia, produced by Burwood Student Theatre Company at Deakin University. It’s the eighth full-length script I’ve had produced, and the first produced outside the United States. It was also a sell-out for all four shows.

Finally catching up with all the photos from the world premiere of THIS ROSE HAS THORNS, my first full-length script produced outside the United States. Here are photos from the first read-through back on December 17, 2017 — by students from Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia. Director John Jennings provides this description: “The first read through/ picnic with the cast of Dwayne Yancey’s ‘This Rose Has Thorns’ was held last Sunday, where the talented group collaborated together for the first time with the script while fighting over picnic food at the Tim Neville Arboretum.”

New poster from “This Rose Has Thorns”

Poster by Julia Allen. Photography by JoKa Photography.

Here’s a new and very amazing poster for my show THIS ROSE HAS THORNS, which opens April 5 in Melbourne, Australia.

THIS ROSE HAS THORNS
A parody of some common Shakespeare themes, with good stage combat roles for women and girls. The daughters of a lord receive letters from their boyfriends, informing them that they have been imprisoned in the Tower of London and expect to be executed. The two girls do what seems only natural to them; they dress up as men and set off to London to rescue them – not realizing that the boyfriends intended these as break-up letters. Comedy ensues. Cast: 13 – 7 females, 6 males.
