Following her acclaimed sold-out season in London’s West End, Bernadette Robinson returns in the hit play Songs For Nobodies.
First performed 10 years ago, Songs For Nobodies is a spellbinding one woman play, a tour de force of imagined encounters between five mid 20th-century divas, Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Maria Callas, and five ordinary women.
Australian playwright Joanna Murray-Smith has mined a rich seam of longing, humour and quiet frustration to conjure the alchemic effect these women’s encounters with their musical idols have on their lives.
Under the direction of Simon Phillips, Robinson switches characters and vocals without a breath, each song choice a glorious homage and celebration, delivered with passion and emotion that few ever come close to.
Songs For Nobodies proves Robinson to be a virtuoso singer, a virtuoso impressionist and a virtuoso actor.
