BY DOROTHY HEWETT
25 APRIL – 27 MAY
This iconic masterpiece of Australian theatre charts the painful and sometimes farcical life of a defiant young poet, Sally Banner, as she searches for artistic freedom and self-realisation.
Set against a background of Australia’s changing social landscape, we follow Sally’s coming-of-age and subsequent brutal disillusionment as a communist, feminist, bohemian, wife, mother and writer.
At the heart of the play is the conflict between Sally’s journey through adolescence to womanhood and a discovery of self, whilst battling the conservative societal forces that would hinder her quest.
Hewett’s semi-autobiographical play is a heady cocktail of poetry, vaudeville, musical theatre and panoramic social realism: ground-breaking, daring, confronting and hugely entertaining.
