Crystal Clear

Project funding was obtained from the Australia Council for a professional production in 1988 of Crystal Clear.  The three-hander was a devised work directed by Ian Leigh-Cooper about human relationships, with the added complication that two of the characters were unsighted.

It brought to La Boite’s stage three popular professional Brisbane actors Paul Bishop, Christen O’Leary and Tracey Tainsh. In the 1989 Matilda Awards Ian Leigh-Cooper was honoured with a special commendation for his contribution to the development of the Arts in Queensland through his acting and directing.
