IMPORTANT UPDATE: Postponement of Kangaroo on 4 - 5 September 2020
In this rapidly evolving situation as our community faces the threat of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and a slew of events across Australia are cancelled and venues close, we are looking very carefully at our programming and options.
We have decided that it is both responsible and prudent to postpone Kangaroo on 4 – 5 September 2020. The production will be rescheduled to a new date as soon as possible and we will contact all ticket holders with more information once the details are confirmed.
Melissa, a mother at 18, is escaping a home life with an abusive father only to realise that history is repeating.
Mick tends the sewage facility and collects the town’s garbage. Once a bright child, betrayal by a trusted adult forms his home-grown philosophy about life’s disposability.
Barbara is a former university lecturer in art settling into country life. Her academic understanding of death is confronted by the cycle of life.
Kangaroo is a rich 60 minutes of debut theatre from playwright Miranda Gott (Bathurst). The play reveals a dark and poetic world of solitude, strength, survival and death.
The development of this works has been supported by ROUTES – a regional partnership between Lingua Franca, Local Stages BMEC and Q Theatre. This project is supported by the NSW Goverment through Create NSW.
