Tears Before Bedtime–Directed and Written by Malcolm Frawley

Just finished a play that we performed at Sydney Theatre School. It is written and directed by Malcolm Frawley. It went really well, and it is an excellent play with all sorts of characters from Grannies discussing sex when they were younger, two crazy writers trying write a play while having an affair and some hysterical comical characters discussing their future relationship after Blake fell in love with a tall, blonde and voluptuous women on a Ski Trip.

There are some sad and serious moments in the play to where most scenes are about revealing secrets, some shameful and shocking.

The play is interesting in that you are watching a play within a play, and you get a feeling that it is being done on the fly.

A very enjoyable play to perform and be part of, and received very good reviews from the Audience, moments of laughter, sadness and uncertainty. The scene with Lilly and Blake is absolutely comical and hilarious.
