The Bookworm

WIT_The BookwormPremiering at 2014 Melbourne Fringe Festival, West Independent Theatre presents The Bookworm at the Bluestone Arts Centre for a limited season from 16 September.

Meet Paige Turner; a book-obsessed recluse, literally eating her way through literature in order to find her soul mate. But she’s moving dangerously close to the truth and her fantasy land of books is becoming more difficult to hide behind.

Will her soul mate find her buried amongst the novels and notes or will she need to go outside? In this new work, Belinda Campbell explores how we shape our reality, how we shape our sense of self and how often we let ourselves escape to ‘the other place’.

Director: Elle Mandalis  Author / Performer: Belinda Campbell Producer: Jennifer Piper
