VIDEO: Head Full Of Love - Meet The Cast

The Annual Alice Springs Beanie Festival is fast approaching and Tilly Napuljari (Paula Delaney Nazarski) is running out of time to finish her new creation and enter it for judging. Nessa Tavistock (Annie Byron), a Sydneysider, has run away to the Red Centre to escape her own problems back in the big smoke.

With time and talk, they realise that despite their differences in language, surroundings and upbringing, they are not so different after all. In making their beanie together, Tilly and Nessa\'s stories become entwined and made into a thing of beauty - row by row, colour by colour, yarn by yarn.

Head Full of Love is the story of these two remarkable women and the unlikely but inspiring friendship which forms between them. It invites you to look differently at the possibilities of the humble beanie: a much-loved everyday item, and an extension of ourselves and the everyday lives we wear.

Wesley Enoch directs this intricate, warm and wisely told tale by Australian playwright Alana Valentine (MP., Run Rabbit Run, Parramatta Girls).

"...contagious humour and disarming charm. Director Wesley Enoch\'s touch is imprinted on every story - honesty, simplicity and imagination pervading all...Head Full of Love is a head-warming, heart-searching story." THE AUSTRALIAN
"Head Full of Love will make you think, make you laugh and make you cry. And really, isn\'t that what theatre is all about?" ARTSHUB

Head Full of Love has been created with the support of the Alice Springs Beanie Festival, the Western Desert Nganampa Walytja Palyantjakt Tjutaku Aboriginal Corporation (Purple House) and the Ngaanyatjarra Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (NPY) Women\'s Council. Since it premiered in 2010 at the Darwin Festival and then was remounted at the QTC in 2012, the play\'s incredibly generous audiences have donated $60,000 dollars in after-show donations, which have been in turn donated to the Purple House in Alice Springs. Sarah Brown, the CEO of the Purple House, has used the donations to allow people living with kidney disease to return to their country for extended visits as well as helping to contribute to the continuing running costs of their \'purple truck\', a mobile dialysis unit which receives no government funding. Head Full of Love is part of an important ethical exchange for theatre makers and storytellers in this country - to give back to the communities from which stories are drawn and to continue to support them in their struggles for justice and healing.

Canberra audiences can donate directly to the Purple House, via their website: http://www.westerndesertdialysis.com/the-purple-house
