Edith Aldridge is the youngest woman to be elected leader of her country. In a lush presidential suite in a heritage listed hotel, she has just ninety minutes to get ready for the biggest day of her life.

Enter Rosie, a twenty-two year old makeup artist from the David Jones counter, sent to help Edith get camera ready. In Rosie’s capable hands, this morning will be a breeze. So long as they both stick to the brief.

Monument is a sharp, funny new Australian play exploring power, privilege, and persona.

“Sheehan’s voice is sparkling fresh, and urgently of the now.”
