Scoundrels In The Cove

A graphic of two fists in hand-cuffs

Come join CEMA Theatre Group characters from the 1920 laneways for a fun night of theatrical interaction. 

Scoundrels will be operating in two parts:  

Part One

Come to the Julia Street Laneway starting at 6:30pm where it is free of charge to wander the lane amongst our scoundrels.   Hear the story of the notorious 'Squizzy' Taylor, stories of 'the roaring 20's' and a variety of characters such as corrupt police, 'Daughters of sin' and many other scoundrels.

Part Two

A two course dinner brought to you by Cove Fine Foods with a short play to be performed between courses.  This is sure to be a fun and tasty night.  Bookings are essential - no walk-ups on the night.

Please note that Scoundrels is an alcohol free event.
