The Chapel Perilous
Directed by Gaye Poole

In 1971, Sylvia Lawson wrote about Sally Banner – “Wearing her hair like armour Sally storms her way to a place in the Australian imagination….an incandescent heroine.”
Dorothy Hewett’s play is full of lyricism, music, satire and a healthy dose of self-parody.

The Chapel Perilous traces the life of Sally Banner over 4 decades; from 1930’s to 1960s, as she evolves from defiant schoolgirl, to communist speaker to a world-renowned poet. Hewett’s freedom of style embraces tragedy, farce, naturalism, expressionism, and musical comedy.

Sally: “I seek the Chapel Perilous and by my courage and great heart I will win through.”

Dorothy Hewett (1923 – 2002) was a multi-talented writer, renowned in Australia for going against the grain both in her life and in her writing. Her body of work includes, poetry, plays, critical essays, prose and an autobiography. Many of her early plays in particular shocked audiences with their explicit female sexuality and throughout her life she retained a maverick image and an ability to polarise audiences and critics. Often under-appreciated in her lifetime, Hewett lives on through collections of poetry such as Rapunzel in Suburbia and Alice in Wormland and her plays, including The Chapel Perilous, The Man from Mukinupin, Bon-bons and Roses for Dolly and The Tatty Holly Story.
