A Conversation cast

A group of Victorian lawyers are set to star in a thought-provoking play.

The barristers, solicitors and in-house counsel will perform in BottledSnail Productions’ A Conversation.

The play, written by Australian playwright David Williamson, presents a “moving and dramatic” mediation between the family of a young woman, who was raped and murdered, and the family of her killer.

A Conversation is fundamentally a play about truth and forgiveness,” said director Olivia Bramwell.

“Yet the more sinister content surrounding violence and crimes against the person is painfully relevant for all Australians given events in recent years.”

A Conversation will star barristers Evelyn Tadros, Kylie Weston-Scheuber, Liz King and Mark Robins QC, OPP solicitor Leon Fluxman, Telstra legal counsel Rachel Delaney, Fair Work Ombudsman solicitor Lyndal Ablett and BottledSnail founder and family lawyer Max Paterson.

BottledSnail Productions is a charitable organisation run by lawyers. It creates musical and theatrical events to promote mental health in the legal profession, and recently presented the first Habeas Chorus concert of 2017 as part of Law Week.

A Conversation will be performed in Melbourne from 13 to 17 June.
