34 Scenes About the Weather

“How about this weather…?!” 

Presented by:

Lunch Friend and Anywhere Festival

Presented by LUNCH FRIEND and Anywhere Festival.

“How about this weather…?!” 

This age-old small-talk starter has begun millions of conversations between strangers around the globebut why this question? What does the weather say that we cannot?

Lunch Friend had an idea; bring together a plethora of playwrights from different stages in their writing career and give them a simple prompt: write a scene about the weather. 

34 Scenes About the Weather is an experiment, an investigation into the way weather affects us all and a celebration of the talents of both emerging and established writers all wrapped up into 70 minutes of theatrical small-talk.

34 stories, 36 writers, 4 actors and 70 minutes of storms, sunshine and human connection.

Boasting a stacked line-up of professional, emerging and first-time playwrights hailing from mainstages, theatre companies, universities, high-schools, bedrooms, studies and cafes across South-East Queensland – including several Matilda, Helpmann and Queensland Theatre Young Playwright award winners – 34 Scenes About the Weather is a carefully curated anthology play that represents everything the Brisbane theatre scene has to offer. 

This amorphous and ambitious work of theatre from Brisbane’s newest theatre-making team, Lunch Friend, will ask its audience to consider some of the big questions in life:

What does the weather truly mean to us? How do we successfully wrestle with forces outside of our control? Will I ever again be brave enough to jump in puddles? Why is Brisbane home to so many great playwrights? 

All will be answered in Lunch Friend’s debut production of 34 Scenes About The Weather, from 19 to 21 May.

This performance is in Bund 1 at The Paint Factory, a retired outdoor industrial space in Yeronga.
