THE GAB EVENT - 'Baptism by Fire'

The second chapter of the ABF’s “The Gab”, a fabulous ongoing series of fundraising events, was another successful evening of penetrating storytelling and generosity. “Baptism By Fire: Stories of First Times”, hosted by the Sydney Theatre Company in November, featured stage and film directors Shannon Murphy, Jeremy Sims, Lee Lewis, Stuart Maunder, Sandra Bates, Sarah Carradine, David Michôd and John Bell, who entranced a delighted afternoon audience with personal revelations of career beginnings, set backs, terrors and overcoming the odds. Our very own Noeline Brown once again stepped in to host the event.

Around $3000 was raised for actors in need and moreover, a scintillating evening was again enjoyed by performers, friends and supporters.
