Notes

Writer, actor, comedian and social activist Candy Bowers is of mixed race South African heritage. Her ethnicity includes Xhosa (First Nation Afrikan), Chinese Malyasian, Dutch, German, Indian, English and Portuguese. Candy's parents came to Australia as Political Refugees from Aparheid South Africa in the early 1970's. Candy is a member of the Equity Diversity Committee and a fierce advocated for women of colour in the arts. #creatediversity. "The very act of casting Candy Bowers, a woman of South African descent, as a white man from a colonising force, is politically powerful and intriguing. And she’s absolutely brilliant in as Penworth, with an impossibly plummy accent and manner belying a dangerous brutality." 5 STARS Ben Neutze The Daily Review https://dailyreview.com.au/lilith-jungle-girl/48985/ "Penworth is an adorably dim yet passionate doctor and Bowers' transitions in and out of the drama and the comedy is seamless. Her subtle and effortless comedy is a joy to watch." 4.5 STARS Victoria Beal BWW http://www.broadwayworld.com/australia-melbourne/article/BWW-Review-MTCs-LILITH-THE-JUNGLE-GIRL-Goes-for-the-Jugular-20160908 "With only three on stage, Bowers, at first, steals the show. Her character, Dr Penworth, the charming yet clueless genius, is generously given all the one-liners..."4.5 STARS Anthony Rebelo Artshub http://performing.artshub.com.au/news-article/reviews/performing-arts/anthony-rebelo/lilith-the-jungle-girl-252140
