Synopsis

When a young man cycles across America to arrive in New York he decides to visit his feisty aging grand-mother, with whom he shares idealistic notions about the world. She becomes a sounding board for his recent tragedy and fraught personal relationships, bringing her worldly wisdom, while she struggles with the inevitable toll of her aging body. They ultimately support one another in their mutual losses. This is a beautiful and poignant insight into life’s struggles seen from early and late in the journey, and the power of cross-generational support and healing. 4000 MILES was a finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in Drama.

Scenes From A Separation

The Basin Theatre Group Inc.
Auditions: 3 Feb 2020 @ 7:30pm,
18 Feb 2020 @ 7:30pm,
23 Feb 2020 @ 7:30pm

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).

A young sculptor who has been critically injured in an automobile accident has been left with an irreversible quadriplegia.

He is trapped inside a useless body with little enthusiasm to continue life. He is determined to decide his own fate.
