THE CITY

BY MARTIN CRIMP

RED STITCH ACTORS THEATRE

 

MELBOURNE PREMIERE: SEPTEMBER 2010

 

"inspiring and unconventional...brilliantly directed and performed" LIZA DEZFOULI - AUSTRALIAN STAGE ONLINE

 

Clair wants to be kissed – but not now – and certainly not by her husband. Chris wants to celebrate his new job by driving into the oncoming traffic. Jenny arrives to complain about the screaming children – but the garden’s empty, and the key to the playroom’s disappeared. Just what strange game is being played here?

 

Three characters fight to make sense of a surreal and collapsing world in this darkly comic mystery.
