Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue

Date: 31 Oct 2018

From playwright Noelle Janaczewska comes Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue, the story of Iris and Leo, two outsiders peeking in at a world of money, power and gossip as they prepare canapés and cocktails for a gathering of Sydney’s cultural elite at the home of Gerald and Margo Lewers.

Set in the lush surrounds of the Nepean River, the Lewers’ home drew artists from around the world to share ideas and help establish the backbone of Australia’s modernist art movement. Inspired by the history of the home, now Penrith Regional Gallery, Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue peers through the eyes of ‘the help,’ to offer a fresh take on Emu Plains in a time of great cultural change for Australia.

Performed by Adam Booth and Kate Worsley, designed by Katja Handt and featuring live music by cellist Me-Lee Hay, Yellow Yellow Sometimes Blue is a story of surviving and thriving as an outsider looking in.
