Carpe Diem - Ross Creek
ABOUT THE EVENT
In partnership with Centre Stage Scripts and local health and community groups, Council is excited to host two live performances of Carpe Diem with actors John Wood and John Voce in Rokewood and Ross Creek.
Touring Australia since 2015, Carpe Diem is an award-winning contemporary portrayal of every day Australian men dealing with mental health challenges, focusing on the topics of health, grief, loss and depression. Stressing the importance of professional care in times of crisis, mateship and looking out for one another, the production is described as ‘a hilarious play with a serious message’.
Set in a fictional town in inland Australia, Carpe Diem portrays the friendship of Nev, a hard-working farmer and his stock agent friend John. Played by well-known actors John Wood, known from popular television series’ “Blue Heelers” and “Rafferty’s Rules”, and John Voce, from television’s “Downton Abbey”, “Dr Who” and “Miranda”, both characters have been impacted by the long-running drought and are each suffering from their own personal crisis.
