It started as a lecture to a group of students in the nineteen-twenties, and became one of the finest pieces of writing in the last hundred years. Wise, witty, passionate, incisive, the story of women writers and the rooms in which they write.

Carissa Licciardello’s impressive mainstage debut brought the famous essay into bold theatrical clarity, with a virtuosic central performance by Anita Hegh. Now a limited chance for those who missed out.

A superb text for performance.

The Australian

[Anita] Hegh is superb.
