upcoming_williamstown literary festival

I'm pleased to be supervising sound operations at the 2014 Williamstown Literary Festival this weekend, Saturday 31 May and  Sunday 1 June.

The 2014 Williamstown Literary Festival explores books, stories and ideas around a sense of place. From diarist Ada Cambridge declaring herself at home residing at last, by the sea in Williamstown, to inspired garden designers who seek to create a more perfect place on earth, and bold, travelling adventurers with tales to tell, there’s sure to be a story you’ll find intriguing, beguiling, or just plain funny. The theme picks up ideas around local community, landscape as a place, and our attachment to home. Wider afield it will explore our collective memory and myths around ANZAC and Eureka, the role and place of women writers in history and politics, the modern memoir and the fantastical realms of science fiction and gothic horror. Places in the heart will be played out through love poems, a new romantic movement and creating family legacies via love laden cook books!

Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw

A romantic comedy about language and class set in London, 1912, Shaw’s witty play in five acts chronicles the phonetician Professor Henry Higgins and his bet to convince genteel English society that Cockney flower seller Eliza Doolittle is a well-bred duchess. This is the play that inspired the much-loved musical My Fair Lady.
