Face to Face and Charitable Intent (2 plays from the Jack Manning Trilogy)

November 9, 2017 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm


In the 1990s David Williamson, Australia’s best-known playwright, saw the dramatic potential of Community Conferencing—a process which
facilitates communication between people who are in serious interpersonal conflict or are dealing with anti-social behaviour. Williamson demonstrated the pow-er of Community Conferencing by translating it to the stage in his Jack Manning Trilogy.
These two short plays from the Trilogy explore very different cases of workplace conflict, with contrasting outcomes. Charitable Intent deals with a charity fund-raising company which has been undergoing disruptive organisational change. In Face to Face, a victim of workplace bullying has then been fired after vandalising his boss’s expensive car. In each intriguing situation there are unexpected developments, as secrets are revealed and human emotions and motivations come to the surface.
