My paean to the women on our stages is in today's Australian. And yes, it was a hard list to make.

this is coolto be honest thoughactors.... kind-of get enough kudosi'd actually love to see a list of incredible female directors/theatre-makers/devisors
I agree Declan.
how this list does not mention the sublime margaret cameron is beyond mefrom her work with one of the few directors of real talent who have ever worked in australia, rex cramphorn - to her meditative monologues - she has brought something very unique to that cultureher absence from your list is for me, then - a mystery
I'm absolutely for the sublime Margaret Cameron, RG. And yes, with Declan here too (although I'd say only some actors get kudos, and on the other hand, actors are commonly dismissed as interpreters of art, rather than artists themselves). If I had been writing such a list for the blog - which I'm unlikely to do, since for reasons which ought to be obvious I find them problematic exercises - it would have been a different kind of thing. I did my best in the parameters of the exercise, which was a commission for a mainstream newspaper. Among other things, that meant I had to stick to main stages, and to people working now. On the plus side, it was nice to write about a bunch of women because of their talent and achievements, rather than because of their celebrity/beauty/connection to a famous man.
