Mates Theatre and the dreaded writers’ block

The cast

Sometimes, to fix a problem, you have to let your imagination run wild.

Mates Theatre Genesis presents the comedy Writer's Block on stage at the Birkdale School of Arts, Birkdale, Queensland, 18 October - 2 November, 2019.

The “Brick Wall” is every writer’s enemy but Jane has discovered a way to make hitting it a little less tedious. Battling with wildly vocal and immensely frustrating hallucinations in the form of her two main characters, Jane sets about to write a play with all the romance and drama she lacks in her own life.

Written by Australian author, Kellie Silver, Writer's Block is set against a 1940’s and modern backdrop, Writer’s Block is a comical romance with a hint of drama that voices some of the unique processes occurring in a writers head as she arduously pieces together the scattered thoughts of her over- active imagination to ultimately produce that perfect work of art - she hopes.

"I am incredibly privileged to work not just with such a rich and vibrant script from a local playwright, but to be able to bring it to life with this talented cast", says Director, Shane Webb.

Tickets range from $10 to $25 and are available online at or call the booking office on 0416 836 196 for assistance.

This play contains some adult themes. Parental guidance is recommended.
