Shrine by Tim Winton

31st May 2017

Tim Winton’s searing drama about a family torn apart by an accident of teenage drink-driving is an other-worldly theatrical event that will take you to the furthest corners of what it means to grieve.

This production will use the full length of fortyfivedownstairs to communicate the evolution of each character’s experience. Sometimes their memories of Jack appear in sudden, sharp focus, only to be distorted again by someone else’s version of the same memory. Sometimes they find themselves laughing out loud together in the darkest of moments. Sometimes their inability to communicate their grief makes them feel a thousand miles away and sometimes the intensity of their pain means they exist in the moment in a way we’re rarely able to as human beings.

The deeply personal connection readers have with Australia’s sharpest storyteller is brought to life by a stellar cast that includes Ally Fowler (Wentworth, Neighbours) and Christopher Bunworth (Boy Out of the Country).  An intense play about the way in which we try to own our dead, and the way in which they come to own us.
