THE CHAPEL PERILOUS

BY DOROTHY HEWETT

25 APRIL – 27 MAY

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????“We can go wrong in our minds, but what our blood feels and believes and says is always true”

This iconic masterpiece of Australian theatre charts the painful, crazy, hilarious life of defiant young poet and sexual rebel Sally Banner, as she searches for artistic and personal freedom.

Set against a background of Australia’s changing social landscape, we follow Sally’s coming-of-age as a communist, feminist, bohemian, lover, wife, mother, and writer.

At the heart of the play is the conflict between Sally’s journey through adolescence to womanhood and self-discovery, and the constricting attitudes of a conservative society.

Hewett’s semi-autobiographical play is a heady cocktail of drama, comedy, vaudeville, musical theatre and panoramic social realism: ground-breaking, daring, confronting and hugely entertaining.

A great play of life, love and longing” Australian Stage Online
