Brisbane’s own doyen of theatre, Margi Brown Ash, crawls beneath the skin of Australia’s Virginia Woolf: the enigmatic Eve Langley.
Eve is the fictional story of a writer caught somewhere between the domestic and the artistic; a story of a reluctant mother and passionate artist; a story for anyone who’s ever felt as if they never belonged.
Inspired by Australian writer Eve Langley, Eve is part memoir, part fiction, part homage to the sacrifice of the artist. Eve is revealed as a woman at odds with her prescribed position as wife and mother to three children, and longs to be left alone to interpret the world through her viciously beautiful prose.
In a Brisbane first, Margi Brown Ash will perform two of her shows back to back in a rare Double Bill performance, exclusively for Brisbane audiences – her award-winning Eve and the acclaimed He Dreamed a Train. Be sure to check out Double Bill options under “Packages.”
Both Eve and He Dreamed a Train explore the difficulty of belonging when faced with the ruptures of illness and death.
Eve has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body, and is proudly supported by Brisbane City Council.
Supported by The Blue Room Theatre, Metro Arts, Playlab and Curtin University.
