AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This play crawls beneath the skin of Australia's Virginia Woolf: the enigmatic Eve Langley. This is the story of a poet and a writer caught somewhere between the domestic and the artistic, between the grip of Oscar Wilde and the realm of the Gods. Unfurling in fragments of poetry, Eve is revealed as a woman at odds with her prescribed position. A reluctant mother and a passionate artist who longs to be left alone to interpret the world through viciously beautiful prose. Part memoir, part fiction, part homage to the sacrifice of the artist, this is a story for anyone who's ever felt as if they never belonged, trapped in their own skin, called by the planets but stuck precariously on a shaky middle-ground.'
