Sarah Judd takes on the role of Alice, a troubled girl, in this psychological horror.
Alice’s claustrophobic world is a black and white film turning slowly into a nightmare. Her reclusive grandfather has died, her mother needs her support, and the bullying at school is getting steadily worse. Suffering from the results of a bizarre and difficult upbringing, Alice struggles to overcome her introversion by confiding in her only friend, Sarah, and the audience. When Sarah betrays her, it’s the final thing pushing Alice towards an unspeakable revenge.
This revival season of A Collection of Noises is to raise money to send Sarah to perform at Shakespeare’s Globe, London, as a member of SGCNZ YSC 2021.
