"Mrs Petrov's Shoe is as much about cultural identity as it is about literary scandal and it is very funny ... Good writing, great performances and a lively debate over social and political issues." - Melbourne Stage Online

THEMES: self-representation, cultural identity, ethnicity, self-representation

CHARACTER AGES: Adult.
LENGTH: 1 Hour
CAST SIZE: Large Cast Without Doubling
TARGET AUDIENCE: Senior Years

Anna Lubansky shoots to prominence with her first novel 'Mrs Petrov's Shoe', the emotional narrative of a nine-year-old girl's struggle to reconcile her Australian reality with her parents' Central European heritage. Set in the Cold War era of the early 1960s, and promoted as heavily autobiographical, the book garners a harvest of awards, and Anna's multicultural star is shining brightly in the literary firmament -- until the real fiction is uncovered ...

Unfolding in four distinct parts, Mrs Petrov's Shoe jumps between fiction and reality, past and present, telling a tale of self-representation and cultural identity, framed by a literary hoax.

* Cast size note: With doubling, a minimum of 3 cast members, ideally 5. The play also lends itself to a large cast production.

PRODUCTION HISTORY Mrs Petrov's Shoe was first produced by Theatre@Risk, Melbourne in 2006. It also received the Queensland Premier's Literary Award the same year.
