Actor-documentary maker Lynne is making a film about homeless women.
It’s an art doco, which intercuts real life characters with Lynne’s re-enactments of them. Her characters include a range of older women from all walks of life who find themselves without a home. Threaded into their stories is Lynne’s journey. As an artist living through a pandemic she faces her own financial crisis. Supported by city soundscapes this is a reading of an early draft of ‘Way’ to assist the development of future drafts towards a production outcome.
‘Sally McKenzie throws herself into her role. Mother is crazy, but we feel deeply for her as we come to understand why she is crazy. It is an astonishing performance’. – Michael Brindley, Stage Whispers, Betty, Theatre Works.
