Cameron's client Patricia Cornelius adaptation of Federico Garcia Lorca's The House of Bernarda Alba opened last week at the Melbourne Theatre Company. The Guardian's Alison Croggon was enamoured with Patricia's adaptation giving it 5 stars, saying it was an ingenious and powerful feminist parable and remarkably beautiful theatre.

Adapted from Lorca's classic tragedy Patricia Cornelius leaves the villages of Spain behind and heads into the heat of rural Western Australia to explore themes of passion, repression and isolation.
With their mining-mogul father dead, the Alba household is in mourning. All four daughters have been called home by their matriarch mother to pay their respects and bunker down in the family home. The future seems wildly uncertain for all but the eldest sister, who has inherited a fortune and is engaged to the local heartthrob. But as tensions rise and tempers flare, will any of them have the power to alter their destiny?
