As usual the night opens at 6 pm for a writers meet up, then from 7 pm performances by Zac Kendall, including the presentation of an excerpt from his play Perfect Match, followed by a solo reading; readings by Mak Soung from his work Missing Boy, and Luke Young; with the evening ending, as usual, with an open mic.
