The Play

Martha’s War on War is a solo-performance work for one female performer who steps in and out of the dramatic action to play the central characters of the Narrator and Martha. Based on the writer’s family history, Martha’s fourth-wall world is inhabited by screen characters – her husband Arch Senior, daughter Ella and sons Arch, John, Douglas, Keith and Warwick. The Narrator interacts with the audience through direct-address.
'I sincerely recommend this powerful play'. Maureen Billiau, Corinda State High School
