No Place for a Woman by Meg Hutchinson
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. You just have to love and respect these people and this story is one of the best. I first visited Pine Creek in , and the Northern Territory when i was I loved Pine Creek at first site. I can't say what it is about the place: Imagine my surprise when I started reading No Place for a Woman to find that it centred around this lady's life in Pine Creek. She arrived there in when she was 16 and her parents bought the hotel.
No Place for a Woman review at Theatre 503, London – ‘subtle and compelling’
The book is a real 'warts and all' description of life for these pioneers: All that a full and fulfilled life can throw at you. Don't for one second think it's just about this one small town; these rugged people moved around in the Territory and down into South Australia as circumstances dictated. At every turn in her life, in every town and city they struggled to survive in, you are right there with her.
And even though I was in all of these places some 83 years later, it so well written, so full of life, that I felt as if I was there with them. One person found this helpful.

No Place for a Woman. Both are from very different walks of life: Through this setting the piece takes the events of one of the most horrific points in history and allows the audience to see it through a domestic lens; by understanding these two characters we can see the depravity of the time in which they existed.
The play is composed of two monologues, which work off each other, building into a climax as the women meet. This composition of monologues is created in such a way that one would be forgiven for believing that they were actually having a conversation with each other. The ease with which these fast-paced lines are delivered shows the talent of both actresses and creates a melancholy dynamic between their characters, developed further when the audience learns the relationship between them. The intimate performance space adds to the feeling of being drawn into the action on the stage.
No Place for a Woman
Directed with beautiful subtlety by Kate Budgen, the simple addition of dance adds another layer to this already complex piece. The dancing builds off the cello music, played live at the back of the stage, creating a sense of missing memory as this whole plece is the two characters telling a story.
It is also used to articulate the emotion of the two women, although at points the music does feel like a tool for a scene change. The set contradicts the life portrayed through dance and evokes a sense of confinement, showing that although Isabella is physically imprisoned, Annie is also emotionally trapped through her relationship with her husband.
