Damian Callinan & Tim Overton
Out Of Print Book Club
For every book published there are 100s that hibernate in hard drives, stagnate in draws and fester in the frontal lobes. Determined to unleash this literary potential are multi-award-winning comedian/actor Damian Callinan (Spicks and Specks, Skithouse, Backyard Ashes) and actor Tim Overton (State Theatre SA, Patch, Junglebean).
Rotating Festival comics and actors join the self-styled, impro bookworms as they conjure unpublished classics before your eyes as The First Tuesday Book Club meets Whose Line Is It Anyway?
At any given session you may see a reading of Shakespeare’s recently discovered attempt at a sitcom, witness a dissection of Brendan Fevola’s little known tome on the American Civil War, delight in the memoirs of fictional '70s psychedelic band Liquid Wednesday. Watch prominent Festival personalities plug books they have yet to write as they push the unpublished.
