Abstract

Miss W Treads is a theatrical encounter with one of Australia’s early performers. A young researcher is haunted by her subject, Eliza Winstanley, the ‘Mrs Siddons of Sydney’. In a cross-century artistic collaboration, Winstanley treads the boards once more. In this new work by writer/director Jane Woollard (The Hammer of Devotion, Aelfgyva, Prophet and Loss) and an award–winning team of theatre makers, the melodramatic challenges the post-dramatic to a theatrical duel. Miss W Treads is a wry theatrical enchantment which features ghosts, wild violins, sword-fights, mysterious signatures and long-dead theatrical ambitions.
