AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This essay considers the work of Australian actor Kerry Walker (b. 1948) in the years 1977-1989. It focuses on Walker's acting style in the roles she played in a variety of works by Patrick White, her approach to acting and her enduring friendship with White. It seeks to document the specific qualities Walker brought to her performances in White's plays and to explain her distinctive understanding of White's drama.' (Author's abstract)
