SYNOPSIS:

THAT Production Company are bringing their multi-award nominated, critically acclaimed production of Sea Wall by Simon Stephens to Brisbane. Director, Timothy Wynn (Matilda Award nominee for Best Director) will once again team up with Steven Rooke (Matilda Award nominee for Best Actor) to bring his tour-de-force performance of this one man show to the New Benner Theatre.

“There’s a hole running through the centre of my stomach. You must have all felt a bit awkward because you can probably see it.”

Meet Alex: doting father, loving husband, loyal son, gentle soul. Spend an evening listening to his story, wading through musings of family, spirituality, art, doubt, love, and loss, between crashing waves of tragedy and hope.

Sea Wall was written by award-winning writer Simon Stephens (Curious Incident of the Dog In The Night-Time) for Andrew Scott (Sherlock, Fleabag).

With wry humour and resolute honesty, Sea Wall is a delicate, unforgettable, and intimate confession, at once brutal and beautiful.

Season running March 23 – April 9

SYNOPSIS:

Rabbit Hole is an honest, brave, and searingly touching portrait of a family experiencing the most heartbreaking of griefs.

The play follows Becca and Howie Corbett, a couple in their late thirties, in the months following a horrific accident. They are searching for what is still possible in everyday existence after unimaginable agony. Becca finds pain in the familiar, while Howie finds comfort. He wants to hold on to the memories, cherish them, obsess over them; she wants to move on, erase the past, and start fresh.

Cracks begin to appear in the relationship as Howie bonds with a member of their therapy group and Becca reaches out to a teenage boy with an intertwined past. Tensions are only increased with the tumultuous involvement of Becca’s mother, Nat, and her sister, Izzy.

The journey for this couple, this family, is an intimate glimpse into loved ones learning to re-engage with one another, couples learning to love again, and people learning to piece themselves together after everything falls apart.

Season running 19 November – 4 December

SYNOPSIS:

Ad Astra’s final production for 2022 is the chilling Death and the Maiden, written by Ariel Dorfman and directed by Jacqueline Kerr. Set in Latin America, the story centres around 3 main characters: Paulina Salas, played by Sandra Harman, a woman whose horrific kidnapping, torture and rape at the hands of government officials comes back to haunt all three characters. Her husband Gerado Escobar, a lawyer who has just been appointed to a commission charged with investigating murders carried out by the previous dictator’s regime, is played by Gary Farmer-Trickett. And Tom Coyle plays Dr Roberto Miranda, an enigmatic and mysterious man whom Paulina believes to be her torturer, though his guilt is somewhat
ambiguous.

This is not a play for the faint of heart. Exploring themes such as trauma, memory, justice and injustice, freedom, female empowerment and forgiveness, we are taken on a tense journey which will hold a mirror to us all, as we grapple with some of these difficult themes.
