Hailed by critics as one of the finest examples of Australian theatre you’re likely to see this year, acclaimed stage show Eve comes to Perth.
Fresh from a hit season in Brisbane, this contemporary work is inspired by the experiences of author Eve Langley, chronicling her life as an artist whose journey and creative works challenged the female stereotype of the day.
Eve is a story for anyone who’s ever felt as though they don’t belong as it follows the artist’s struggle between the domestic and the artistic; a reluctant mother versus a passionate artist.
The brilliant, yet troubled, writer was one of Australia’s most original novelists, yet her prime writing years were spent locked away in a mental institution before a death in artistic isolation.
Part memoir, part fiction, part homage to the sacrifice of the artist, Eve is revealed as a woman at odds with her prescribed position and longs to be left alone to interpret the world through her viciously beautiful prose.
Performer Margi Brown Ash, supported onstage by a live musician, presents a beautiful and haunting interpretation of Eve’s imaginary and real experiences.
The season runs from October 23 to November 10 at the Blue Room theatre, tickets are on sale now at www.blueroom.org.au.
