Muse and mentor, Sunday Reed was the founder of Melbourne’s Heide Museum of Modern Art, and the heart of a circle of artists that included the likes of Sidney Nolan, Albert Tucker and Joy Hester. In this world premiere MTC commission, Nikki Shiels (Home, I’m Darling) embodies Reed’s passionate and unconventional spirit, bringing to life an audacious fantasy of her fateful affair with Nolan, her unbroken devotion to her husband, and the devastating price she paid for living and loving on her own terms as a woman in mid-20th century Australia. Award-winning playwright Anthony Weigh (2,000 Feet Away) brings this Melbourne icon to the stage with a lively and impressionistic dream of Sunday Reed’s intellectual, artistic and romantic life. Directed by Sarah Goodes (Home, I'm Darling) and also featuring Matt Day (North by Northwest), Mark Leonard Winter (Miss Julie) and Ratidzo Mambo (Escape from Pretoria), Sunday is an unforgettable story of a bold and complex woman, born out of time and place, whose shadow looms large in our city’s history....
