This Room Holds Her Memory.jpg


World Premiere

Written by award winning playwright Laura Lethlean (Pillow Fight), this new work is a deep meditation on a particular experience an elderly man had in his youth. His memory of the event oscillates. It turns over in his mind and what he thought he knew is challenged. He is confronted with hidden truth, beauty and dread. He enters the room with nothing left to lose. The room that holds her memory.

Previous reviews of Taylor's work

'Ariette Taylor, who has spent the better part of seven years bringing this production to the stage, has crafted a work that is bold, ambitious and above all humane.

This production is a revelation, in many senses of the word, revealing not only its beauty and elegance but also its underlying motivations and theatricality as it unfolds.'

Australian Stage on The Lower Depths 

'this is not naturalism or expressionism, or any other theatrical mode: it is something quiet and enclosed, which, in its careful, truthful way points toward a new existence...'
