THE SCULPTURE GARDEN
by Noel Hodda
Directed by Bob Philippe
Valley Artists is proud to announce that its next major production will be the premiere of Australian playwright Noel Hodda’s latest work, The Sculpture Garden.
The Sculpture Garden will be directed by Bob Philippe, who also directed – to popular acclaim – Valley Artists’ 2013 premiere of Noel’s play Across the Water, a story of age, loss, recriminations and regrets, acceptance and love.
The Sculpture Garden is the story of a young woman and a young man, of a sister and a brother, of a husband and a wife, and of a father and a daughter.
“Everybody has secrets….”
From the streets of Paris to the Australian bush The Sculpture Garden sends its roots through two-continents, eight lives, a new generation, a desperate act of love and bravery born of loss.
It is romantic and dark…yet … “In this light, everything is possible”.
Noel Hodda has worked extensively in theatre, film, television and radio for over thirty years as an actor, writer and teacher.
Bob Philippe is a fellow NIDA acting graduate of Noel and a founding member of Valley Artists. He is delighted to add The Sculpture Garden to his long list of directing credits for the company. They include The Removalists, Aladdin, Hotel Sorrento, Honour, The Importance of Being Earnest, Summer of the Seventeenth Doll, Away, Money and Friends, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), Across the Water, Can’t Pay?
