Welcome To Lit Live
"It's more than just story time for grown-ups - characters jump right off the pages and into the room..."
Elena (Lit Live lover!)
Literature live in performance
Prepare for a unique experience, full of exploration and imagination.
Centre for Stories in Northbridge; First Wednesday of every month
Private and corporate events
Lit Live engages lovers of stories with the works of brilliant writers from around the world, performed by some of Perth’s best known and best-loved actors.
A great short story will provoke, inspire, enlighten and move us, and who better to bring the drama, passion and humour of a story to life than a professional performer?
Lit Live is produced and presented by actor Sarah McNeill, who crafts each performance event around a theme, with carefully sourced international stories and essays, music or live musicians, to suit the location, the occasion and the audience.
It is a uniquely shared experience.
Lit Live has performed at intimate house dinners, at festival events and has a regular monthly event on the first Wednesday of the month at Centre for Stories, in Aberdeen Street, Northbridge.
It addresses relevant themes, the works of guest authors, theatre or film collaborations, and introduces literature lovers to the short story form.
Call producer Sarah McNeill to discuss your next event, themes, stories and songs.
"I have laughed, been surprised and even got a bit teary, but always stayed absolutely enthralled..."
Producer and Presenter, Sarah McNeill
Sarah McNeill is an actor in theatre, film and television.
She loves telling stories.
She also loves listening to stories, so she decided to create the opportunity for other lovers of stories to come together, relax and enjoy great literature – for the pleasure of a uniquely shared experience.
Sarah knows that short stories are not a warm-up for the "real thing". They are jewels of concision, and she spends a lot of time finding the very best short stories from around the world to read aloud.
Sarah is a professional actor and invites other actors to join her to tell great short stories in an intimate and relaxed setting.
