Having graced our stages for over two decades, Angie Milliken has more than earned a retrospective of her work. Ahead of her first show here in a decade, The Effect, we open up the archives to reveal some of Angie's STC highlights...

Angie's first appearance with us was in Richard Wherrett's final production as Director of STC. Anton Chekhov's Three Sisterswas adapted by Aubrey Mellor, with Angie playing the youngest sister, Irina. (Photo: Stuart Campbell)

Two years later, Angie returned as Hero in Much Ado About Nothing, directed by Wayne Harrison. The spectacular costuming was the work of Angus Strathie, best know now for his Academy Award-winning designs for Moulin Rouge. (Photo: Robert McFarlane)

We had to wait until 1997 before Angie next appeared. This time it was in Peter Whelan's The Herbal Bed, directed by Marion Potts. Angie played a fictionalised version of Susanna Hall, Shakespeare's eldest daughter. Here she appears to be getting adulterously amorous with Sandy Winton, local haberdasher and resident hunk.

The next year, Angie continued working with Marion Potts as director in the love quadrangle of Patrick Marber's Closer. Here Angie and Colin Moody try to work things out on Genevieve Blanchett's set (yes, they're a very talented lot those Blanchetts). (Photo: Tracey Schramm)

Angie returned twice in 2000, first in Brian Friel's A Month in the Country (after Turgenev's original), directed by Lindy Davies. STC stalwart Lauren A. Proetti was in charge of all that magnificent hair. (Photo: Robert McFarlane)
