A Woolf at the Door was performed at the The Armidale School’s Hoskins Centre in Armidale, October 2015. The show provided audiences with a cross section of feminine perspectives on love, living and lunacy, featuring the work of Virginia Woolf, Alan Bennett and Sydney-based Vee Malnar.

Anita Brown and Mark Lawless in Stolen Heart

Anita Brown as Eveand Mark Lawless as Constable Jones  in Stolen Heart, gave us a quirky insight into a miscommunication about lost love and the law. Barbara Albury in A Room of One’s Own and Jan Wyles in A Lady of Letters met the challenge of holding people to the stories of their characters with little more than their voices, their faces, minimal gesture and a simple set, designed by Chris Cunningham. Chris also directed A Room of One’s Own and Alex Taylor  directed A Lady of Letters, while Jenni Ford made her directorial debut with Stolen Heart. The production team, focused and professional, highlighted the talents of the actors.
