Peter Rose and Francesca Sasnaitis – members of The Highly Strung Players – will present three new works from Peter Rose’s The Ones, a series of duologues about a married couple who happen to be publishers.
The Highly Strung Players is an ensemble dedicated to the performance (rehearsed readings) of works of absurdist drama, past and present.
Last July, Rose and Sasnaitis performed the first two duologues in The Ones in front of a large audience at fortyfivedownstairs. In February 2018 they will perform the last three duologues in this five-part work, all performed in public for the first time.
The Ones is presented in association with the Highly Strung Players and Australian Book Review.
Peter Rose has published six poetry collections, two novels, and a family memoir, Rose Boys, which won the 2003 National Biography Award. He is currently writing a series of duologues called The Ones. He is the Editor of Australian Book Review.
Francesca Sasnaitis is a writer and artist. Originally from Melbourne, she now lives in Perth where she is a doctoral candidate in Creative Writing at the University of Western Australia. Her poetry, short fiction and reviews have been published online and in various print journals and anthologies.
