    The Knitting Circle



    A funny, emotionally challenging new play by Julie McNamara, offering a glimpse into the secret world of the asylums closed in the 1980s.



    Directed by Antoinette Lester and written from the authentic testimony of survivors, the production is dedicated to forgotten voices and celebrates the irrepressible human spirit.

     

    Over 20 years ago I ran a womens group inside one of the old hospitals, where I lived and worked for two years. You had to be seen doing something for the hospital shop, so it was suggested a ‘Knitting Circle’. Two years ago I found an old tape from some of the women in that group. I learned a lot about love and a whole heap of mischief. And I still can’t knit!'


    (Julie McNamara 2010)
