Theatre Works and Skin of our Teeth Productions Present

Hysterica

By Christine Croyden, Christine Davey, Duncan Esler and Megan J Riedl

4 - 8 October

Meet Alice Anderson – a gay mechanic and entrepreneur in 1920s Melbourne.
Meet Joy Hester – a fierce, angry, larger-than life artist in 1940s Melbourne
Meet Elizabeth Gould – mother, lover, wife, artist of colonial Australia in the 1800s
Meet Dawn Faizey-Webster, a woman with locked in syndrome completing her PhD with the blink of an eye.

These remarkable women have been relegated to the sidelines of history and it’s time to bring them centre stage. In four interweaving, funny, moving, thought-provoking monologues, two actors – Mary Steuten and Tess Parker – inhabit these extraordinary women, telling their stories with truth, rawness and vulnerability.
