The Potato Shed’s resident theatre company Theatre 3triple2 presents the annual Winter Solstice One-Act Plays on June 17 and 18.

This year, both plays are written by Jack Price (2021 Oldie Locks).

In The Three Pears, Rod and Sam are selling the family home. Sam wants to move to the mountains, Rod wants an old farm house with lots of sheds so he can work on his cars and other projects he is ‘gunna do’.

To complicate matters, Rod gives up drinking for a month, and to help curb his desire for a drink, eats ‘special pears’.

When one of the pears goes missing, Rod suspects ‘The Jogger’ has eaten his pear – or have they? The Three Pears is directed by Ian Campbell.

Inspired by recent events, Corona Captures, directed by Petrina Dakin, tells the story of Philip and Andy, who decide to break the Covid-19 ring of steel around Melbourne to go camping and four-wheel driving.

They meet Duncan who threatens to chop their heads off, just as Dean offers them tea and cake.

Settle in for two unique nights of cosy entertainment, and a Potato Shed tradition of live music, mulled wine, warm fires and the best in local writing and performing.

The Winter Solstice One Act Plays is an annual event showcasing the depth of performing arts talent within the local Bellarine community.

Established in 2004, Theatre 3triple2 aims to create, develop and produce local performing artists and theatrical projects on the Bellarine Peninsula.
