Black Sequin Dress, The

Jenny Kemp
 
A woman leaves her children for an evening to go to a nightclub. In a moment of indecision she glances back, slips and falls. Money, desire and dreams converge as she enters a surreal world of haunting colours and lyrical distortions.

Still Angela

Jenny Kemp
 
An unpredictable portrait of a contemporary Australian woman at three ages. On the cusp of her birthday, Angela goes on a real and imagined journey through time: up the garden path of her childhood; into the kitchen with her lover; and onto a train that travels into the Simpson Desert. Here the possibility and inevitability of change is recognised, and Angela realises and celebrates her life.

This evocative and innovative play may be read as a modern fairytale, exploring the linear and cyclical nature of a woman's life.

  • Thoughtful, piquant and evocative. It's a small and beautiful stage poem for the new millennium.  [...] Still Angela is an intriguing and ennobling theatrical experience. -   Courier Mail
