PLAYWRIGHT: Rachael Coopes will present the 2017 Theo Barker Lecture.

THE seventh Theo Barker Memorial Lecture will feature young local performers in a rehearsed reading of the text delivered by Australian actress and playwright Rachael Coopes.

The free public lecture on Friday, August 18 is the latest in the CSU Explorations Series.

Adjunct Associate Professor Robin McLachlan said the lecture was a significant Bathurst event that was “scholarly in content and popular in presentation”.

“Lecture presenter Ms Coopes has a deep passion for research-based projects derived from her fascination with how Australia's past informs its present and a desire to create theatre for young people,” Associate Professor McLachlan said.

“Her plays have been staged in the USA, Britain, and across Australia, and they delve into the complex process of merging history with imagination.”

The venue for this free public lecture is the City Hall at the Bathurst Memorial Entertainment Centre at 6pm for a 6.30pm start.

Light refreshments will be served before the start of the lecture.
