● Emina Ashman. Photo: Sarah Walker ■ Darebin Arts Speakeasy presents a Jamaica Zuanetti production, as a part of the 2017 Melbourne Fringe Festival. Too Ready Mirror, written by Jamaica Zuanetti and directed by Rachel Baring, tells of three overlapping worlds. Four trapped women. In 17th century London, Nell pleases audiences and the King to keep her place. In present day Melbourne, Ruby performs for camera clicks and the love of Mars. In the future, the Institution tells Lily and Alma to be good girls, to stay safe and never escape. Too Ready Mirror; is a play about sex and power. About performing. About succumbing. About resisting. A Melbourne-based writer and performer, Jamaica Zuanetti graduated with a Master of Writing for Performance from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2015. Currently a playwright in residence with Lonely Company, Too Ready Mirror will be her first full length play, an exploration of female sexuality and empowerment across generations.

● David Baker and Erin Pocervina in Fish. Photo: Sarah Walker ■ Rollercoaster Theatre Company is an independent ensemble troupe of actors with disabilities. Their performance at the Melba Spiegeltent was an opportunity for the actors, (Andrew Tresidder, Cameron Stanley, David Baker, Melissa Slaviero, Erin Pocervina, Michael Buxton, Shea MacDonough, Ryan New) to trial their self-written compilation of pieces loosely based around the theme of fear. Movement and music were employed to explore different forms of expression and elements of stagecraft included the change of costumes and wigs much to the delight of a supportive audience that included the family, friends and carers of the cast. Assisting in what must have been an organic development of ideas in an extended rehearsal period were the director, Maud Davey, dramaturge, Sarah Sutherland with musicians, Jane Bayly, Chris Lewis and Carolyn Connors. Credit must also be given to set, costume and lighting designers, Adrienne Chisholm and Paul Lim. Theatre can be a stimulating and expressive forum and a marvellous platform for expression enabling both reluctant voices and would be stars to have their moment on stage. Fish was presented by the Rollercoaster Theatre Company at the Melba Spiegeltent, Collingwood. - Review by David McLean
