Giggles and scones at Tolga CWA hall

THE first QCWA “More than Tea and Scones” performance for the Tablelands will be kicking off this Sunday 28 May at the Tolga Hall.

Written by award-winning Cairns playwright Angela Murphy of Veranda Theatre, the show could be set in any CWA hall.

“I travelled over 2200km, visited 22 Country Women’s Association (CWA) halls across North Queensland and interviewed over 70 women,” Ms Murphy said.

“Their stories have been woven together to create a funny and insightful piece of theatre that will appeal to anyone who cares about their community.

“It’s an eye-opening revelation into what the women in the CWA do. It will surprise and amaze you,” she said.

“The show is heartfelt, honest and at times hilarious. It’s the QCWA in their centennial year and it’s coming to a hall near you!”
