By Colleen McCullough and Adapted for the stage by Tim McGarry

Tim is a new Australian play based on the novel of the same title by Colleen McCullough. Central to the story is an unorthodox love that develops between Mary, a career driven, mid-50s business executive and Tim, a handsome 25-year-old labourer with a mild intellectual disability. Tim has grown up in a small but loving working-class family who have tried to shelter him from the cruelness of the world.

What begins as a chance meeting between them, soon develops into a life-changing relationship for both. Tim’s protective family grapple with a deep suspicion of sexual coercion, a disability system that has failed them and the devastating loss of Tim’s mother. Filled with notions of love, loss and acceptance, and set in the modern day, this seminal Australian story has been sensitively adapted for the stage by playwright Tim McGarry (Boy Swallows Universe). Directed by award-winning director Darren Yap (Diving for Pearls, Miracle City, Letters to Lindy), Tim’s gripping and controversial storyline catapulted Colleen McCullough to international fame. She remains Australia’s highest selling author, with over 80 million books sold worldwide.

Suitable for ages 14+

This production has been supported by the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund – an Australian Government initiative.
