19 Sep 2019

Upon its release in 1956, the film version of BABY DOLL provoked virulent threats from protestors, bans from religious leaders, and flippancy from critics who dismissed it as a lurid tale of a virgin child bride, her sexually frustrated husband, and her smarmy lover. A collaboration between Tennessee Williams and director Elia Kazan, BABY DOLL […]

Q&A: Simone Romaniuk on designing THE LAST WIFE

19 Aug 2019

The story of THE LAST WIFE follows the dangerous sparring between Henry VIII and Katherine Parr, but you won’t find our royal family dressed in ruffs and corsets or hanging out in dark castles for that matter.

Director’s Note: THE LAST WIFE

Kate Hennig’s extraordinary play bridges the gap between a historical drama with contemporary relevance. The characters in THE LAST WIFE suddenly spring to life with real thoughts, feelings, ambitions, humour.
