OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Our group of Psychologists, Directors, Producers, Actors & Writers and Crew are committed to creating and enabling opportunities for older women (and men) who have come to acting as a later vocation, as well as enabling younger women (and men) to develop their craft with support from wise elders. We also invite others to submit their plays or pieces to us. Like ‘Mission Impossible’, there’s a file of actors, performers, and crew we call on. Please let us know if you’d like to be involved; you can LIKE/follow us on our FACEBOOK Pages Theatre Productions GLAMM, THEATRE INTERNATIONAL STUD AT BUTTERFLY CLUB, mfPsyiscurioCity, KAILASH STUDIOS Brian Walsh (film)
director | producer | playwright | psychologist & author Meredith Fuller, a professional child & adolescent actor, has been privileged to work with actors including Norman Kaye, Anne Charleston, Patsy King, Joseph James, and Paul Karo; and for Directors including Irene Mitchell, Harold Lang, Jo Wallis, Helen Franklyn and Cy Holden. On TV for Crawford productions, she also worked for photographers including Athol Shmith and John Cato. Meredith trained at the National Theatre, and won a scholarship for best student. She didn’t take up her teaching scholarship for Rusden; instead, she chose to become a psychologist. While she spent a number of years in amateur theatre until her 20’s, she has spent the last 30 as a psychological media commentator | panellist being herself for TV & radio in Australia (and the USA via skype). Her knack for predicting and influencing the trajectory of successful creative artists has seen her private practice as a vocational psychologist not only encourage talented creatives, but also assist them to develop additional career paths as later choice or circumstance may require. Meredith has had extensive training in Psychodrama with George Calley, and body work with Stanislov Grof, amongst others.
Meredith spent several years studying professional writing with talented teachers including Ray Mooney. Beng Oh directed her play “Stalk, Stalking, Stalked” at Dancehouse in 2002, and her plays were read for audience at Gasworks. Meredith has co-directed several short films for Kailash Studios, amongst others. With Fred K Levit, in 2015 Meredith also co-hosted a weekly Channel 31 TV show ‘FullerLevity Classic Movies’, and in 2014 co-hosted a weekly radio program.
‘Meredith’s the epitome of professionalism: talented, generous, motivating, humorous, a delight to work with.’

Set in 1949, ‘The Wisdom of Eve’ reveals unconscious motivations of fear, envy, power, and control in this inside tale of New York’s Theatre World. The film, ALL ABOUT EVE with Bette Davis and Ann Baxter was adapted from this story.
How far would you go for fame and adulation?
Director Meredith Fuller, author of “Working with Bitches” (2013, Da Capo USA) has examined Eve’s psychology in one of her BITCH TYPES (No. 6), and wished to demonstrate how her type of Bitch can have a toxic effect on anyone who comes into her orbit. Loyalty and betrayal may lie on a continuum, as we shall observe with the cast members – but, more provocatively, this play asks if wisdom can be evil?
