Gearing: Plays  

Janis in the Chelsea / Elgar's Tenth Muse / Meeting Mr Wilde

Gearing: Plays $20.86 ex GST
$22.95 inc GST
Is public adulation always accompanied by private disappointment? Is creative fulfilment necessarily at odds with personal happiness? What is the price of fame? In these three biographical scenarios—about Janis Joplin, Edward Elgar and Oscar Wilde repectively—Nigel Gearing explores the often droll disparity between the satisfying structures we call Art and the infinitely more messy ‘rag-and-bone shop of the heart’.
