Who’s the woman in Manet’s paintings… and what’s she hiding?
Zadie is writing a book that’s going to blow the international art world apart… or so she’s been telling everyone for nine years. She claims her book will prove once and for all that an illicit affair between Belle Epoque artists Eduoard Manet and Berthe Morisot actually occurred. There’s only one problem – she can’t find the letter that proves her theory; and she happens to be the only academic who believes this letter exists. Obsessed with what she believes to be a 'perfect' love affair between two dead artists, one that she has largely been able to chart through a series of 11 intimate, fraught and exposing portraits, Zadie has buried herself in papers, archives, dossiers and letters to the point where her grip on reality is becoming uncertain.
Between the Streetlight and the Moon was one of five finalists for the Sydney Theatre Company Patrick White Playwright Award in 2016 and was also shortlisted for The Silver Gull Award in 2015.
“…soulfulness, passion and intelligence.”
“Humour and heartbreak are balanced brilliantly.”
“The characters are complex and flawed, yet enormously appealing and relatable.”
