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 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.
Lisa Quast, Leanne Roobol and Frances Tafra of the Three of Hearts Singers entertained the audience during interval, accompanied by Robyn Bradley on piano.
