Student actor juggles roles
STUDENT Sophie Prober is studying neuroscience and linguistics at UWA while also starring in Following the Black Sheep for Playlovers Theatre in Floreat.
Written by Perth playwright Yvette Wall and directed by Campbell Greenock, the play follows the life of Jack, his sister Shirley and her daughter Frances at the end of World War II.
Prober plays Shirley and said tensions rose when Frances had to make an important decision about her future.
“Shirley sticks to her principles, which can result in conflict when a loved one decides to go against the grain,” she said.
Following the Black Sheep is showing on a double bill with The Wardrobe, which tells the stories of various young people who seek refuge or comfort in the same wardrobe between 1485 and 2015. The season is from September 11 to 13. Tickets at www.playlovers.org.au.
