Maude is a woman of many talents with an eye for art. In her final year of studies, Maude was very aware that she would never have that “kind of time again for her craft”. She believes she has been fortunate to have parents who taught her how to think and not what to think. She remembers her Gran struggling to answer the question, “what did you want to become?” For her Gran, raising her family was her job. Maude says it was as if her Gran didn’t know she could have a choice.
She reflected further, “My other gran was very clever. The school raised funds for her to go to university, but her dad said ‘what will you do with a degree? You will be raising your children’.” It is with this in mind that Maude says, “We have come a long way. My mom paved a path for me and I will be paving an easier path for the next generation”. Maude believes that theatres aren’t competing with each other but with “malls, bars and beers”. She says, “As theatre makers we are collectively in competition with these things and not each other.”
