The Firing by Greg Buist
Directed by Nicky Prescott.
A play about youth and experience. A teapot (Pot) and a blob of clay (Clay) compare the merits of their existences. At the start of the play it is Clay who is full of life, bursting with enthusiasm about the future and scornful of the boring set-in-his/her-way existence of Pot. By the end of the play, Clay has a greater appreciation for Pot, experiences some self-doubt and is left to ponder what the future might have in store.
Clay – Amanda Benson
Pot – Bronwyn Price
