She Wrote the Letter

She Wrote the Letter

Starts: Friday, 24 June 2022, 12:00 am
Ends: Sunday, 03 July 2022, 12:00 am
Some friendships seem impossible but last a lifetime. She Wrote the Letter is based on an unlikely, long-lasting real friendship between Ute from East Germany and Tania from New Zealand – two women who maintained a 30-year committed pen relationship across language and cultural barriers, and through the collapse of communism.  Written by prolific Melbourne playwright, Kieran Carroll, in a collaboration with award-winning director Cathy Hunt, the play is drawn from correspondence that begins from a series of youthful letters from 1979 navigating the difficult East-West divide, before drawing us into complex family lives over decades. Throughout all the political changes and shifts, and the evolution of their own lives, Ute and Tania maintain a loving connection and a longing to see each other’s countries. Performed by Tania McNaughton as herself, with Maria Nordenberg as Ute.  She Wrote the Letter is based on a genuine experience through an incredible time in history.   Don’t miss this funny, joyous, and heart-warming new Australian play. Livestreamed Friday 1 July 7:30pm $10.
