Next Goodmann Production  - To be announced.

Effie’s Burning- by Valerie Windsor


Goodmann Productions are delighted to be returning to The Etcetera theatre after the success of both Abigail’s Party and The Killing of Sister George.  Goodmann return with Effie’s Burning in which Petina Hapgood( last seen as Sister George) plays the title role of Effie.  Petina will also be artistic director of the production.

Effie, an old lady who has lived in mental institutions since the age of 13 has been admitted to hospital with severe burns.  Treating her is Dr Kovacs who finds in Effie’s extraordinary story of injustice and official callousness the key to her own supressed anger and power. Taut and powerful, tender and often funny. In this first class production from Goodmann -  Effie’s Burning engages the heart.
