CONVERSATIONS: KERRI GAY & GABE ADKINS

Join us for another insightful, fun and fascinating evening, as we go into Conversation with two of Launnie's most sparkling theatre people - Kerri Gay and Gabe Adkins.

Alongside their pile of combined credits, recently the two have joined forces to create the show Man V Dog, which has just won a grant from Regional Arts Tasmania and is about to tour the state before heading to Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne Comedy Festival in 2022.

Please come along for the Conversation, and stay for a cleansing knock off beverage and further chats; hosted by the Friends of Theatre North Social Committee. A social and scintillating time to get the community together throughout all the madness.

Entry is free to Friends of Theatre North, but please do register for numbers! Looking forward to seeing you there.
