It rings a bell! It connects. It's not only for the young!! We were young, not long ago!


Cameron Bates took this picture of Sophie Cleary, being Belle, in Belle’s Line, at the Old Fitzroy Theatre, in Woolloomooloo.
I almost resent the idea that this comedy, with its heart-string-touches, is most likely identified with by young women needing to choose between love and career, today.
I am 65 (only recently! Did you see my Bubble pages about my exhibition?) and I connected.

I laughed.

I identified.

I recognised situations and people whom I’d known in the late 70s, going through this.

I was so pleased today to find that a fellow DACC board member, who happens to be very much part of the acting scene/fraternity, could not get a ticket on Tuesday night, as the theatre was booked out.
That means that a lot of people who take the time to visit the Old Fitzroy Theatre are having a laugh and spending a few hours, in our busy city, relaxing and enjoying themselves!

It rings a bell! It connects. It's not only for the young!! We were young, not long ago!

Artist's Description

Life has placed me in a south-western Sydney suburb, where I “don’t get out much any more” but taking the plunge and ordering a ticket for " cheap night " Tuesday, gave me a taste, again, of relaxing in our city of sydney.
