Norm and Ahmed go to Armidale

In The Alex Buzo Company I introduced the company founded by the notable Australian playwright’s daughter Emma to produce, promote and perpetuate his work, and in Alex Buzo Company double bill I foreshadowed the August revival of Alex’s first play, Norm and Ahmed, at the Seymour Centre, Sydney, under the direction of Arne Neeme, in a double bill with a contemporary reworking by award-winning playwright Alana Valentine.

On Friday 25 September Norm and Ahmed will come to Armidale to kick off The Armidale School’s Old Boys’ Weekend with a performance in the new creative arts centre, the TAS Hoskins Centre.

Tickets, a steal at $15 per ticket, are available from TAS Reception on (02) 6776 5800.

The performance will commence at 7.00 pm, preceded by drinks and nibbles from 5.30 pm.

For an amusing recollection of Graeme Blundell’s brush with the Vice Squad when Norm and Ahmed was first performed – Blundell’s first gig as a director – go to Graeme Blundell on Norm and Ahmed and follow the links.
