Congratulations Tauranga Writers Group
- here's wishing you another 50 successful years.
50 years is a significant achievement,
and current members are celebrating it in style
with a series of events throughout 2017.
See below for what's coming up next week, the official birthday week.
Scripted by novelist and playwright Bronwyn Elsmore, Fallout made its stage debut in Auckland, thirty years after Rainbow Warrior succumbed to deliberate sabotage authorised by the French government. Bronwyn was living in Tauranga then, a member of a local anti-nuclear group. At that time she was also a member – and later President – of Tauranga Writers, an emerging author establishing her present reputation as a fine writer of both fact and fiction.
Bronwyn will be introducing this reading of her play. Reading by Papamoa College drama students under the direction of Head of Drama Dylan Frewin. Fallout was chosen by Tauranga Writers to celebrate its 50th birthday.
In addition - Wednesday 21 June Bronwyn Elsmore ‘On writing the play’
A 2-hour workshop at Alzheimer’s Society House, 116 13th Avenue Tauranga, 2-4 pm. Bookings as below.
