Formatted Abstract/Summary
‘Sally Banner might say that all she wants is to be “a great actress and a great writer”, but I’m not convinced that is all she wants. At the very least, her literary desires are bound up with other more earthy desires. She wants to be loved; she wants sex; she wants attention; she wants male attention; she wants men to be dazzled by her beauty, her sensuality, the suppleness and daring of her intellect.’

In Playing Awkward, Noëlle Janacewska presents a contemporary response to a treasured Australian play – a personal and striking take on The Chapel Perilous by Dorothy Hewett.

Playing Awkward is part of Cue the Chorus, a series of ten thought-provoking responses to classic Australian stories.
