Pegasus wings into Mt Martha
The Mornington Mail, 12 October, 2006
CHASING Pegasus (a play in ten chords) begins its Mornington
Peninsula season at Mt Martha House next Wednesday following
its season at Gasworks Arts Park as part of the 2006 Melbourne
The play revolves around members of the Serendipity Book Club,
a house- wife, two teenagers, a school teacher, an ex-singer,
an author, a deaf girl, an accountant, a book shop owner and
a shop assistant.
"In a world where strife and terror abounds, where we
are cajoled to fear, distrust, fight and destroy that which we
don't understand, Chasing Pegasus is a celebration of what makes
us different, and through that discovery, a recognition of what
makes us ultimately the same," the play's writer director
Sally Mclean, said. "Essentially, it is a story about finding
the extraordinary in ourselves and our fellow man."
The show arranged by Ms McLean, of Mornington, includes Ross
Ryan performing his 1974 hit, "I Am Pegasus", and newsreader
Jennifer Hansen. Also in the cast are Peter Flaherty ("All
Saints"), Kathleen Ronchi ("Henderson Kids", "Prime
Time"), Sarah Penn, Michael Clayton ("Dancing at Lughnasa"),
Tanya McCall ("Hiding From Hitler", "Nicholas
Nickleby"), Hannah Fox, Bridget Neval ("Neighbours",
"Wicked Science") and Charity Shaw.
Chasing Pegasus will be at Mt Martha House, Mt Martha,
at 8pm, October 18-21 and 4pm on Sunday, October 22. Bookings
