Songs For Nobodies
Written by Joanna Murray-Smith
Directed by Simon Phillips
18 Dec - ember 2019 - 5 Jan - uary 2020 | Fairfax Studio
Following her acclaimed sold-out season in London's West End, Bernadette Robinson returns in the hit play Songs For Nobodies.
First performed 10 years ago, Songs For Nobodies is a spellbinding one woman play, a tour de force of imagined encounters between five mid 20th-century divas, Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Maria Callas, and five ordinary women.
Renowned Australian playwright Joanna Murray-Smith has mined a rich seam of longing, humour and quiet frustration to conjure the alchemic effect these women's encounters with their musical idols have on their lives - from right there in the moment to their future choices.
Under the direction of Simon Phillips, Robinson switches characters and vocals without a breath, each song choice a glorious homage and celebration, delivered with passion and emotion that few ever come close to. Every audience member intimately feels that her performance is just for them.
Songs For Nobodies proves Robinson to be a virtuoso singer, a virtuoso impressionist and a virtuoso actor. Enjoy the heartbreak and hope of Songs For Nobodies in this special limited Encore season.
