Let PK entertain you

FIFTY+SA Entertainment Writer, Paul Kitching, shares his most anticipated events in Adelaide this Spring, let PK entertain you!

Paul Kitching – aka PK – from Fuller Brand Communication has been out and about enough over his 50+ years to still have his finger on the pulse for the best things to see, do and enjoy in our excellent state. Whilst we all know life starts at 50, we also know what we like and are choosy about how we dedicate our precious spare time. PK reckons these gems are all worthy…

The Dictionary Of Lost Words

Dunstan Playhouse, Adelaide

Fri Sep 22 – Sat Oct 14

In 1901, the word ‘bondmaid’ was discovered to be missing from the Oxford English Dictionary. The Dictionary of Lost Words is the story of the girl who stole it, and in time, more and more ‘missing words’ to create her own dictionary of ‘lost words’. South Australian novelist Pip Williams’ internationally bestselling book is set to come to life in this world premiere stage adaptation by South Australian playwright, Verity Laughton. The multi-award-winning book has been celebrated globally, chosen for the Reese Witherspoon Book Club, and even had the New York Times calling it “…a captivating and slyly subversive fictional paean to the real women whose work on the Oxford English Dictionary went largely unheralded.” Be the first to see live on stage what is sure to be a theatrical sensation; and before it next becomes a Netflix series. And all from the clever mind of a local South Australian novelist!
