If walls could speak…

The building in which this play is staged has gone from Victorian Mansion to Boarding House to Cultural Centre.

The story is an invention based on impressions o the life of a grand mansion in St Kilda from the Boer War to the Bicentennial. Its bricks and mortar enshrine our history and the lives of its inhabitants pass like shadows, wondering if there’s such thing as real progress after all, or whether life is just a case of “you can’t always get what you want”.

It’s not so much the place you’re in, but the time you’re in it. Or, as Monika would say, “only the journey matters”.
