Oh / Let Me In
By Ted Neilsen
19 May 1978 – 10 June 1978 Playbox Theatre
Hoopla Theatre Foundation,
Theatre - Spoken Word
Two plays written after Sunday evening workshops organised by Hoopla in association with The Age and Penguin Books (the playwright claims they were both penned in a train carriage on the Glen Waverley Line).
"Oh" explores the unfulfilled desires simmering beneath the cosy veneer of a couple's domestic life, while the suburban characters in "Let Me In" must shelve their dreams before they're able to fully articulate them.
Production still for "Let Me In". L-R: Anne Phelan, Michael Duffield. Photographer: William Gluth
