Gabriel Bergmoser and the cast of his one act play 'Heroes' certainly set a high bar at the first of the Broken River Writers' Discovery Workshops at NEA this evening! The audience felt so privileged to have been there! Workshop activities with Gabe helped to set the scene for a performance of 'Heroes by Matt Phillips (Jake) and Blake Stringer (Nick). This was followed by a discussion of the play, from inception to recent performances across Victoria and nominations and presentations of a range of awards. . 'Heroes' is a complex, extremely well written play by an exceptionally gifted young playwright - it is also being performed in the Mansfield 2017 Festival of One-Act Plays this weekend.
