It's been a while, but the Lieder Theatre Company's programming is finally back to normal.
There are two cracking productions coming your way; the re-staging of Sam Shepard's 'Fool For Love' and the return of the award-winning Mighty Playwrights program's All Star Gala.
'Fool For Love', directed by Ryan Paranthoiene, is a lean, tense, oddly funny drama set in a dive hotel at the edge of the Mojave desert.
This twisted "cowboy romance" reunites Eddie and May who rediscover the surprising depths of their past conflicts.

Paranthoiene, who is making his Lieder Theatre Company directorial debut, said he loved the community spirit and flexibility he witnessed within the creative team at the Lieder.
"Coming in with just an idea and a challenging script; every actor and crew member has given great suggestions, lots of input and feedback as this play has materialised and come to fruition on the stage," he said.
"The Lieder is a home where things like this get done, and they get done well."
Following 'Fool For Love' will be the world premiere of seven short plays written by local primary students in the mighty playwrights program run by Goulburn Mulwaree Library.
Ryleigh McKellar, who was a part of the program last year, said it was a great experience.
"Being a part of the first year of the Mighty Playwrights program was such a fantastic experience," she said.
"Working with a real author who listened to my ideas was amazing.
"It showed me that my thoughts and ideas could be taken seriously and that what I had to say actually matters.
"I'm so excited to be a part of the Mighty Playwrights again this year, this time working backstage with the Lieder theatre actors who will bring the stories to life.

"I've not been involved in the theatre before and I can see now that so much more goes on behind the scenes than what we see on the stage."
The seven plays will be performed at a grand red-carpet gala from December 10 to 18.
You can also catch 'Fool For Love' on November 10, 12 and 13 at 7.30pm or at 2pm on November 13.
Tickets for the four performances are available at www.theliedertheatre.com Bookings are essential and dine and discover vouchers are accepted too.
