EXIT: Screenwriter and critic Martyn Pedler visits Parkes Shire

“Growing numbers of men and women believe that this city is a maze. They are leaving their jobs, their families, their entire lives behind. Every day, they walk the streets, opening doors. They are searching for a door they are convinced has been lost for thousands of years: the exit. What’s behind it? Something else. Something new. Using a strange system of maps, symbols and measurements, one believer — Alice — now thinks she has found it.”

Hot on the heels of the successful Central West Comics Fest last weekend, I’m pleased to announce that award-winning Melbournian writer Martyn Pedler will be visiting Parkes Shire on Tuesday 25th February for a one-day event kicking off a series of gaming and storytelling activities which interrogate the boundaries between fantasy and reality.

Martyn will work with students at Parkes High School, before appearing at a Q&A discussion and screening of his 2011 movie EXIT at Parkes Shire’s Coventry Room at 6.30pm.
