HESTER

by Wendy Beckett

Politics, romance, art, tragedy and war....

Hester is set in Melbourne in the 1940s, when life was intense. It follows the life of Australian painter Joy Hester—wife of Albert Tucker, friend of Sidney Nolan and John and Sunday Reed.

"A remarkable portrait of a remarkable woman... Hester allows the audience to taste the frustration of an era which touches on issues as diverse as communism, war, art, friendship and love."—Donna Fairleigh, The Drum.
