I'm an actor currently studying at ALRA. This rehearsed reading of a script I have written is taking place at ALRA South as part of my Masters and will go towards my final mark. Please note you will not need to learn any lines, but as there may be some blocking there will be a short rehearsal period.
DEFINITION: Burgher people, also known simply as Burghers, are a small Eurasian ethnic group in Sri Lanka descended from Portuguese, Dutch, British and other European men who settled in Sri Lanka.
STORY Easter 2019. Noleen and her sister, June, are visiting their parents for Easter. What starts out as a wholesome, heart-warming family reunion is turned upside down by the news of the Sri Lankan Easter bombings as Noleen is faced with demons from her childhood. 'Burgher' explores what identity means to a British born citizen of mixed heritage and the impact of childhood abuse on this identity.
