Love, Loss and What I Wore is written by Nora and Delia Ephron, the pair responsible for writing the screenplays for When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle and You�ve Got Mail.
The play is a series of monologues about women�s relationships, their wardrobes and how the two sometimes interact, providing a time capsule of a woman�s life.
Murphy will be playing a variety of women who reminisce about what they wore in their youth, and growing up and coming of age.
�Being a series of scenes and monologues rather than a traditional play, there are a lot of character changes for the ensemble cast members,� she said.
�This is a great challenge but it also means having to switch very quickly between characters and, with that, comes changes in energy, pace and tone.
�One minute you�re in a light-hearted scene about how women have an obsession with black clothes and, the next minute, you might have a scene that�s much more introspective or touching. It�s about trying to make that as organic as possible and treating each moment appropriately.�
Murphy, who is presently studying theatre and drama at Murdoch University, has appeared in numerous productions, including a Bollywood version of Richard III and was one of the principal cast in the community TV series Love on the Box.
In 2013, she performed in Noel Coward�s Hands Across The Sea at Melville Theatre and A Conversation at the Old Mill Theatre, following those roles up in 2014 with Cosi at Phoenix Theatre and Ninety at Garrick Theatre. She has written and directed short films.
