To Whom It May Concern, RE: ESSENCE PRODUCTIONS – POINT OF NO RETURN On behalf of Frankston Arts Centre (FAC), I am writing to support the production of Point of No Return that we presented as part of our 2018 Season. The play is written by an Australian author Alaine Beek and explores a little known but interesting part of Australian history – the first boy’s prison, Point Puer built in 1834 opposite Port Arthur Tasmania. We had an extremely positive response with schools, with 81 students from two local schools attending the performance. They were highly engaged by the performance and also benefited from the opportunity to speak with Alaine prior to the performance. This enriched their experience greatly and Alaine’s knowledge, passion and warmth in delivery was truly welcomed. It was an excellent “add-on” that we could offer to our schools and provided true insight into the making of the production. I highly recommend this new Australian work and hope that it is able to tour extensively. The professionalism and quality of Essence Production was excellent and there is no doubt that this riveting production easily engaged with our audience. If you would like to discuss the production further please contact me on 0404738978.
