Lella

Lella Cariddi


In 1955, 15-year-old Lella Cariddi arrived in Melbourne from Italy, docking at Princes Pier after a 30-day journey. 50 years later, she would find herself documenting a range of personal histories from others who, just like her, had set foot in Australia for the first time on that very pier.

Alan Hopgood

Alan Hopgood's ability to tell difficult stories with warmth, humour and grace has always resonated deeply. The play, 'Wicked Widow's came from Dr Susan Feldman who did her PhD on the subject of widowhood, where she interviewed 80 widows. Alan Hopgood said, ‘Well, I can’t put 80 women on a stage… but can I take three women’s stories?’ With permission granted, the play 'Wicked Widows' was developed from three life experiences.

Laura Lethlean

Laura Lethlean

Playwright Laura Lethlean has always been interested in other people. This natural curiosity, and awareness of increasingly black-and-white attitudes, has led to a desire to highlight the grey in life, ‘If we can find something small to do, that holds meaning for us, we can find more meaning in life.’
