Wesley Institute’s alumni theatre company, Twisted Tree Theatre, will be presenting The Way of All Fish at the high-profile performing arts space, the Seymour Centre, from 30 October – 1 November.

Twisted Tree Theatre began in 2007 with the purpose of providing Wesley Institute alumni a platform for their theatrical endeavours. In an industry where artists are often confronted with obstacles, Twisted Tree Theatre supports alumni by offering a range of opportunities to develop skills in performing, production, marketing, budgeting and theatre administration, with the aim of producing professional and public work. Alumni are welcome to approach the company at any time with their creative ideas and scripts.

In The Way of All Fish, a one-act play by renowned playwright Elaine May, nothing is as it seems. Having been described as the The Devil Wears Prada meets The Office, this uniquely executed production presents an hilarious and revealing exploration of powerThe Way of All Fish in the modern-day workplace.

The Way of All Fish will be produced, directed, stage-managed and performed entirely by alumni of Wesley Institute’s Bachelor of Dramatic Art. Hailey McQueen (2002 graduate) and Sarah Farmer (2003 graduate) have taken on the play’s lead roles, and Neridah Morris (2006 graduate) will serve as Stage Manager. Naomi Stewart (2002 graduate) is making her debut with Twisted Tree Theatre as director.

Since graduating from Wesley Institute, Naomi completed a Teaching degree and went on to teach Drama and Dance at the HSC level. She also studied extensively in London with exclusive schools, including LABAN Contemporary Dance and Movement Academy and The Circus School. Her talent is in combining physical theatre and comic realism.

“In The Way of All Fish, we are creating something physical, something very funny and something through which audience members will see elements of themselves,” said Naomi.

Wesley Institute congratulates Twisted Tree Theatre on its success, and is proud of the commitment of our alumni to use their skills and areas of expertise for the benefit of their communities.
