Synopsis

Based on a true story, four men are sailing to Tonga when their boat overturns in a storm and they spend the next 119 days adrift. Flipside tells the story of what the men went through and then what happened after.

Their survival story is told as a flashback throughout the play. The present day features two of the former ‘shipmates’, as one keeps a bedside vigil to the other who is dying. There are elements of this journey between the two of them that echo what they endured with the others on the boat.

Over the course of the show, the four men confront the elements, each other, and themselves.

Director: Terese Maurici

Agent: Nick Hern Books

Synopsis

On a moonless evening, a man brings his new girlfriend to a remote cabin for a night of trout-fishing. But before the night is over, it becomes clear that nothing is as it seems… and as memory collides with desire, the truth becomes the most elusive catch of all.
Described as “beautiful, slippery and unnerving”, the nature of the play and its inherent mystery means that the finer details of its plot and characters resonate long after the production.

Scenes From A Separation

18 Feb 2020 @ 7:30pm,
23 Feb 2020 @ 7:30pm

VDL Awards Entry: 2020

Author: Andrew Bovell and Hannie Rayson

Director: Sharon Maine

Agent: HLA Management Australia on behalf of the Rights Holders

Synopsis

There are two sides to every separation. Two truths. A story which will resonate with anyone who has ever loved and lost.

Matthew and Nina have been married for twelve years. He is forty; a successful publisher. Always in control, his pace is enormous and his path is littered with the discarded souls of those who tried to keep up. Nina’s thirty-eight; a journalist. She hasn’t worked since the birth of the children. She’s restless; looking for something. So when Mathew suggests she takes on the biography of Lawrence Clifford, tycoon, philanthropist and now Australian of the Year, she throws herself into the project with an all-consuming enthusiasm. This is a play about love and betrayal, about sex, sacrifice and survival, of break-ups and break-downs.

The play is a dissection of the breakdown of a marriage: with Andrew Bovell’s Act One taking the male point of view, and Hannie Rayson’s Act Two seeing the other side of the story (and scenery).
