Abstract: This essay documents and analyses the work of actor Maggie Dence, exploring her early training with Doris Fitton and her early success playing Mavis Bramston in the iconic television series 'The Mavis Bramston Show'. The essay examines Dence's career on stage and television over more than 50 years, focusing on her many comic roles as well as her contribution to Kingswood Country and the television adaptation of Nevil Shute's 'A Town Like Alice'. The essay also focuses on Dence's recent performance in the popular new Australian play 'Seventeen' and her own approach to this and other particularly demanding theatrical roles.
