Australian composer Malcolm Williamson studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music before embarking on a prolific career as a composer. His diverse work spanned opera, jazz, choral and orchestral works and in 1974 he was appointed Master of the Queen's Music.

" Kate Gaul’s smart production finds a shrewd balance between vaudeville and pathos thanks to an economical yet imaginative design (also Gaul) and witty, well-resourced costumes and makeup. Understanding that Sitwell is writing about the thin line between oddity and insanity, Gaul has a chorus of four resemble Hogarthian Bedlam inmates, always keen to assess the state of mind of the next cookie likely to wind up in the cookie-jar. Characters populate her scenes, sometimes animated, sometimes static as if their minds have wound down for the moment."  Clive Paget, Limelight

 

 

"Ms Gaul's production was a model of simple, uncluttered and intelligent theatricality that brought the strengths of the composition and the young artists to promising bloom for the audience."  Kevin Jackson, Theatre Diary
