MASSG Theatre Night Alert! Start the new year with a (much needed) escapist excursion!
Our next Theatre Night will be on Wednesday 27th February, with the Heidelberg Theatre Company production of
LOST IN YONKERS
written by Neil Simon
Set in Brooklyn, 1942, this Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a heart-warming testament to Simon’s brilliant talent. Tickets are $25 each. All proceeds will be used by MASSG to support people who have come to Australia seeking safety for themselves and their families.
(If bookings are full, click to Contact Event Organiser.)
Please pass around to your friends and networks this chance to see the award- winning play and help support people seeking asylum. There will be a delicious MASSG-provided supper, of course, by donation.
And in March – Dignity in a Teacup
