In 1923 the writer Katherine Mansfield went to the guru Gurdjieff in Fontainebleau in the hope that he might ‘cure her soul’. In the 1980s in Sydney, a young man awakes in hospital to find a world dominated by women. This daring re-examination of the female artist challenges the threshold of sexual politics.

Wicked Sisters

Alma De Groen
 
When George Hobbes—scientific genius­—dies, his widow, Meridee, hosts a lunch for three friends. The four women have known each other since their youth but their lives have gone in divergent directions. As secrets unravel through their reminiscences, George’s influential theories of evolution based on ‘deadly’ competition begin to have an uncanny resonance and Meridee’s genteel Blue Mountains idyll dissolves into a battleground. Alma De Groen’s new play takes a sharp-fanged, humorous look at the shape of women’s lives.

Two worlds ruled by terror interact: Russia’s poet-hero Anna Akhmatova is under house arrest in Stalinist Leningrad, while her friends attempt to save her writings. In a futuristic Australia, a similar oppression by corporate society has suppressed all memory of literature and the natural world.
