Sunday 30th of December
10.30 am - 4 pm
Harper's Mansions, 9 Wilkinson St, Berrima
E. info@harpersmansion.com.au

Returning to the Southern Highlands is a significant painting by Louisa Atkinson, a noted botanist, journalist, novelist and artist of the mid-1900s. The watercolour entitled ‘Study of a Possum’, painted in 1860, has been put on display at Harper’s Mansion, the National Trust property in Berrima, for a limited time.

Many of Louisa's works are now held by the NSW State Library but the ‘The Study of a Possum’ was gifted to the National Trust by Janet Cosh, Louisa’s granddaughter, a long-time resident of Moss Vale. It hung in Old Government House for several years and has recently been restored and re-framed.

ON STAGE DATING

Friday 8 - Saturday 9 February

Mittagong Playhouse, Cnr. Main St & Bowral Rd, Mittagong
PH. 0457 906 846

Featuring a different audience volunteer each performance, Onstage Dating is an exciting, interactive live-art work which pushes the boundaries! Onstage Dating uses American psychologist Arthur Aron's famous 36 Questions, which proposes there are a series of specific questions a couple can answer together which accelerate the 'falling in love' process.
Onstage Dating is an extremely timely piece, given that online dating is the most common way people seek out and meet their significant others in the 21st century.
The show has been performed all over Australia, in London and recently at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018. It is highly improvisational, and because each performance features a different volunteer, each one is is new, dangerous and exciting.

TWO

Thursday 28 - Saturday 30 March
Mittagong Playhouse, Cnr Main St & Bowral Rd, Mittagong
PH. 0457 906 846

Jim Cartwright's play TWO has resonated across continents. Originally set in an English Pub, the script has now been adapted, by the Ensemble Theatre, for the Australian stage, and features the lovely Kate Raison and real-life husband, Brian Meagan.

Set in as country pub, the lives of our middle-aged landlord and landlady couple have literally become their work. They met as children outside the pub, were engaged in the pub, has their wedding reception in the pub, and eventually bought the pub. Over the years they have served every type - and you're about to meet them. They all have their own story to tell.

As the stories unfold it becomes clear that TWO is about relationships and as they bicker their way through the night, none is more fascinating than that of our landlord and landlady. How will their story end?
