Welcome to Red Door

For those who might not have read my more extensive introduction, Red Door is a celebration of plays that I – for various and extremely personal reasons – really dig. They are also works that I regard as key developments, as significant steps in the unfolding story of our theatre. They are by no means the only steps, or even necessarily the most important, but they are all in their own ways fascinating and distinctive works.

Here is the latest release from Red Door, Patricia Cornelius' LOVE

I love Patricia, not just for her plays (which ache with empathy and possess a wry, powerful and distinctive voice) but also for her presence in the theatrical scene. This chamber piece is a nuggety, passionate and searing play about love in all of its forms – sexual love, friendship, the love of power, the love of drugs, love’s ability to both destroy and redeem. I think it’s destined to become a classic of its genre and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Tom Healey,
Red Door Curator

"In Cornelius’ capable hands, what could have been the last gasp of a genre in decay becomes a miraculous but painful resuscitation — pure Narcan." - Cameron Woodhead, The Age
