Stars on Stage:  A CONVERSATION WITH REG LIVERMORE  sees the Australian living legend Reg Livermore returning  ‘home’ to talk about his new book and life with ABC Radio presenter James Valentine.

Reg is just as excited about returning to the Independent Theatre as he is about talking about his new book.

It’s so lovely to be having this event at the Independent as so much started there for me,” Reg says of the place where as a schoolboy he began theatre training.

Proceedings begin with Afternoon Tea at 2.30pm. The conversation between Reg and James Valentine will be followed by a book signing at 5.15pm.

Stars on Stage:  A CONVERSATION WITH REG LIVERMORE (Facebook Event) is November 3, 2018 at the Independent Theatre, North Sydney.

In 1958, Reg Livermore became a founding member of Hayes Gordon’s Ensemble Theatre, alongside Lorraine Bayly, Don Reid, Jon Ewing and Clarissa Kaye. This year, during the 60th anniversary of the Ensemble, Livermore has returned to the boards with his latest one-man show, THE WIDOW UNPLUGGED (OR AN ACTOR DEPLOYS).  His triumphant entrance on opening night inspired a well-deserved round of applause !
