An Angel at My Table

The extraordinary true story of a life saved by writing

Through a family life marked by poverty and tragedy, a young girl develops an extraordinary imagination. After eight years in psychiatric institutions being misdiagnosed with schizophrenia, Janet Frame went on to become one of the world's most celebrated modern writers.
New Perspectives is thrilled to bring one of the great autobiographies of the twentieth century to the stage. Steeped in the atmosphere of rural New Zealand, this courageous life story is testament to the triumph of the creative mind against all odds.

"Four decades experience of adapting written works for the stage. What some might consider theatrical difficulties New Perspectives revels in as artistic challenges" Reviews Hub
