The Secret Life of
“A wonderfully convincing Warhol. His Solanas is bitter and spiteful; his Francis Bacon is hilariously pompous. Although brief, Roost’s portrayal of the vulnerable, tormented Edie Sedgwick was one of the highlights of the one-man cast.” - Tamika Glouftsis Collage Adelaide
"A really strong actor performing a cleverly written play. I was in fact, in a state of cognitive dissonance for the entire performance – but maybe that’s how you are meant to feel when you have Warhol’s soul stripped bare in front of you." - Bob Cryer Hi-Fi Way The Pop Chronicals ****
