In the digital age time is moving so fast I am resorting to the conventions of the telegram. Emerald City playing this week Parramatta Riverside stop Masquerade rehearsals awesome stop Google taking over building stop National Theatre forum Thursday stop Lysicrates Prize shortlist soon stop deadline for Griffin Award looming stop.
