For our last Writers’ Room of the year we are thrilled to welcome award-winning Australian showrunnner, writer and director, Tony Ayres.
Tony talks to Fiona Samuel about his career as a creative dynamo, and his involvement at the helm of some of the most critically and commercially successful high-end television to come out of Australia (The Slap, Nowhere Boys, Maximum Choppage). Lauded for his skills in story development, Tony delves into the processes behind Australia’s recent high-end television success.
Thurs 30 October, 7pm drinks, 7:30-8:30 session, The Loft (upstairs), Q Theatre, 305 Queen Street.
