It’s time for 2014’s Ensemble Stages Spring Reading! Come along and be part of the very first audience to hear a new Australian script read by a stellar bunch of actors, then contribute to a discussion about your response to the piece: what you liked, what you didn’t and what changes might be made. We are very excited to present a reading of:


FOR GOODNESS SAKEYBy Tempany Deckert


It’s 1975. Australia’s attachment to Mother England is slowly loosening. But not everyone likes the change.
After suffering a breakdown, conservative history teacher, Max, finds himself hired as a private tutor for Gigi, the daughter of infamous art darlings who’ve raised their child on a regime of atheism and rebellion. The subject: Australian history. But, whose history?
In a world where adults have their noses pressed firmly up against the canvas, Gigi must find a way to step back to a place of safety, a place of control, to force those around her to appreciate the work of art she has been creating all along.



About the playwright

Tempany Deckert tells stories in many mediums. She grew up in Australia as a household name on the television drama, HOME AND AWAY, but soon fell in love with writing after studying at the prestigious HB Playwrights Studio in New York City. She is the author of 18 young adult novels, several optioned teleplays and currently holds a coveted teaching position at UCLA’s Extension Writing Program in Los Angeles, California. FOR GOODNESS SAKEY is her first full-length play.
