Songs For Nobodies

Date: 18 Dec 2019

Following a sold-out season on London’s West End, Bernadette Robinson returns to Sydney with a spellbinding one-woman play of imagined encounters between five divas – Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Maria Callas – and five ordinary women.

Playwright Joanna Murray-Smith mines a rich seam of longing, humour and quiet frustration to conjure the alchemic effect of these encounters

Directed by Simon Phillips, Robinson switches characters and vocals without a breath, each song delivered with passion and emotion.
