Away

by Micheal Gow

Directed by Timothy Bennett

Winner of the 1986 NSW Premier's Literary Award for Best Play, the Sydney Theatre Critics Circle Award, the AWGIE award for best play and the Green Room Award, 'AWAY' has been regularly voted Australia's favorite play in newspaper and magazine readers' polls around the country.

Set in the Australian summer of 1967-68, a time of great change for the Australian consciousness, 'AWAY' takes us into the lives of three ordinary, yet very different families, as they set off on their Christmas summer holidays. The holiday becomes an emotional journey for each family as they come to terms with major change in their own lives.

Written with great affection and subtlety, a variety of characters are brought vividly to life with warmth, wonderful humour and pathos as the play explores the universal themes of love, loss, reconciliation and renewal.

With set design by Clare Singline, costume design by Susan Carveth, lighting design by Michael Schell and direction by Timothy Bennett, we hope you will join us as a talented cast and crew present this endearing, funny and poignant play, 'AWAY'

The season commences on Saturday 6 March and runs until Saturday 24 April (no performances over the Easter weekend).

Performance times are Friday and Saturday at 8.00pm and Sundays at 4.30pm.
