TOWER OF POWER FOR ONE-WOMAN SHOW!

The performance space that Richardson and Keady have chosen suits their purposes well. Up in this lofty box at the end of a spiral staircase, there is nowhere to hide for either the audience or the actor...This is storytelling the way it has been told for thousands of years at campfire's, caves, club rooms and playgrounds, ...The 6sqm clock tower studio high above the main PICA building was chosen to enhance the intimacy of a single-hander that director Sally Richardson describes as a combination of theatre, installation, play and conversation....in fact, a monologue delivered by Katie Keady, who displays the talent that saw her hailed WA's best female actor in 2006...Getting up close and personal, Keady is captivating as the child and the various adults in his life that he channels in his efforts to make sense of the inexplicable.... Stephen Bevis, The West Australian
