Motherlock

The ‘Motherlock’ Controversy

Three actors, three cities, four seasons, and one VIP over two years (September 2010- September 2012). ‘Motherlock’ is a journey of (four) pregnancies over a fourteen year period, exploring the challenges women face, when becoming a ‘mother’. I have thoroughly enjoyed working (as both playwright/director) with Virginia Frankovich, Narelle Ahrens and Tara O’Brien, who have all added a different dimension to ‘Motherlock’. The set is minimal, based in a bedroom, with some favourite books by George Orwell and Stephen Fry, along with photos and letters. The key props are the chair and mirror, which is where the storytelling happens. Monologue is brilliant when it works, through pace, colour and content. Hopefully I achieved this, some reviewers think so. No matter, I believe in my work. ‘Motherlock’ will soon be adapted to a short film, eventuating in 2013. Keep you posted.
