To whom this may concern We would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves.
Our names are Amanda Sandwith and Sophie Lampel and we run Essential Theatre. Essential Theatre was founded in 1996 and our main aim is to produce theatre that will entertain, provoke and inspire audiences to think in a fresh way about their own lives. 2003 sees Essential Theatre tackle one of their most exciting projects to date. We have been given the opportunity to produce Linda Jaivin’s play “Seeking Djira” as an Australian Premiere at 45 Downstairs in August, 2003. ‘Seeking Djira’ explores the complexities associated with Asylum Seekers. Linda Jaivin has been able to take one of the most complex topics, refugees, and turn it into a sparkling comedy that also carries a potent social and political message. Linda Jaivin best describes ‘Seeking Djira’ as “ A provocative comedy about self-obsession, social conscience, sexual attraction and the mandatory detention of asylum seekers.” We are writing to you in the hope that our production may be advertised through your network of contacts, whether it be through your email database/newsletter/ or Website. We would be most grateful for any assistance that you could provide us. In return we would be more than happy to place any literature from your organisation at the door of the theatre.
