Hegney Wrote 'Unqualified' with her Co-star Catherine Moore
Unqualified is a 2018 contemporary comedy play directed by Janine Watson, which stars Hegney and Catherine Moore. Hegney and Moore also wrote the 90 minutes play presented at the Ensemble Theatre.."
The plot revolves around two forty-something women, Felicity Bacon and Joanne Truebody, who meet by chance at a Centerlink office. Felicity Bacon, played by Catherine Moore, is the only daughter of a butcher who is desperate to find another job because she does not want to take over the butcher shop when her father retires.
Joanne Truebody, played by Hegney, gave up all of her post-high school ambitions to marry her high school sweetheart. Unfortunately, her partner later ran off with a guy once he shot to fame on television, leaving her to fend for herself with few skills other than running his real estate agency.
As per a 2018 review by Broadway World, the play progresses at a good speed, with a good mix of clever text and fantastic physical humor and mime. Moreover, it stated that the Ensemble theatre's intimate space allowed for nuanced expressions to be easily recorded, ensuring that the audience is immersed in the work to where one scene was met with a gasp and audible exclamation from an audience member, heightening the humor and horror of the moment.
Besides, Unqualified also has its 2022 sequel, Still Unqualified, played by Hegney and Catherine Moore.
