As subscribers we always enjoy these after show parties but this one was extra special for Cate's contribution - no trace of Hollywood, she was in workmanlike mode..but expressive, articulate and passionate about the significance of this play.
I'll never make it as a paparazzi - I only had my iPhone on hand.
There is no point in urging everyone to see this play - based on the Kate Grenville (she was there too on Thursday night) book of the same name. It's a sold out season already in Canberra.
The play is about a time in recent Australian history (the first twenty years or so of English settlement/invasion) when events determined tragic consequences that all Australians either struggle to understand or have to endure/grapple with today. Heavy stuff! But riveting, confronting, challenging (and inspiring) theatre. Thank you Cate and your Andrew for ensuring this story got told this way.
