Temperatures Soar at Cascades Female Factory!

I haven’t heard an official temperature for Hobart today. It was forecast to be 35 degrees. We are not long back from performing Louisa’s Walk and it hasn’t cooled down much. Judging from the way I felt in the Crime Yard it was at least 40 degrees in there but hey – we survived. Our audience were all armed with big shady umbrellas but, as with the rain, we can’t perform under umbrellas (it’s hard to “emote” when your hands are otherwise engaged – even without Italian lineage). So, no shelter for us.

We were a small group of four (four others had sensibly cancelled because of the extreme heat). However, this audience was composed of an American from California, a German girl (surely not used to the heat but young enough to be undeterred by it) and a couple from Perth who didn’t find it particularly hot! I must admit that I wasn’t sure if I was going to be sick or pass out but I saved the drama for Louisa’s story and spared everybody either option. Chris who seems to be much more stoic about extremes of temperature, took it all in his stride and wondered what I was fussing about – men!

However, once again Louisa’s Walk worked its magic and our audience were transported from the 21st Century to the 19th. Laughter and tears along the way is part of the course.

There’s a big notice up at The Cascades Female Factory saying they are closed over Christmas and New Year. Louisa’s Walk is open all over the New Year and we have access to the Yard so, if you are looking for something special to do in Hobart over the New Year period give us a ring and make a booking to hear Louisa’s story. You won’t be disappointed.
