Potato Shed, Drysdale

August 31, 2018

To whom it may concern,
We recently booked two performances of Essence Production’s “Point of No Return”,
written and directed by Alaine Beek. The production formed part of the 2018 Theatre
Season at the Potato Shed - Bellarine Multi Arts Centre at Drysdale.
The setting was perfect - the set simple yet extremely effective, the soundtrack and lighting
working so well in an intimate space. The audience were taken on an incredible journey –
back to Tasmania back hundreds of years – to the halls and the scrub - and into the hearts
of the young convicts. The writing and the character development along with some
outstanding performances touched all who viewed the production.
I would recommend this work to a varied audience, it has appeal to many, to students for
history, to emerging actors and writers to show what is possible, with hard work and
determination, or to anyone who loves history or just enjoys theatre. This work reiterates
the importance of theatre, and theatre for and by young people, and again shows the
important role theatre plays in educating audiences – no matter what age.
I wish Alaine and the cast and crew of “Point of No Return”, all the success in staging the
production again and again, this is a work that deserves to be seen by many. It is produced
and presented with utmost professionalism and has strong marketing materials and media.
The production is affordable and is quite simple to stage and I would recommend any venue
to seriously consider booking “Point of No Return”.
