Strangers in Between

A funny and moving Australian classic by Tommy Murphy, playwright of Holding the Man
Presented by Cameron Lukey (Resident Alien and Angels in America) and Don't Be Down Productions

Shane has fled his family and is seeking refuge in Sydney's Kings Cross. Confused and naive, he meets two strangers: the ultra-urban Will, who offers brotherhood, sex and something unexpected; and Peter, a fifty-year-old gay man whose mother is dying in a nursing home. With their help (or hindrance), Shane grapples to reconcile himself with events from his past. But how can he move on when he can't even use laundry powder?

Directed by Green Room nominee Daniel Lammin (Master Class and Awakening at fortyfivedownstairs), this timely new production features a stellar cast - AACTA winner Simon Burke (Malthouse Theatre's The Homosexuals  and Foxtel's Devils Playground), recent Helpmann Award winner Guy Simon (MTC's Jasper Jones), and  Wil King (The Production Company's La Cage Aux Folles).

"...boisterous, bitter and sweet, and replete with raw emotion." - Sydney Morning Herald
"There's a certain delicate beauty in the simply honesty of Tommy Murphy's writing" – Australian Stage
'Full of laughs... a charming and often exhilarating experience' – Sunday Telegraph
'...there's an honesty and openness to Murphy's writing that is irresistibly heart-warming' – Sun Herald
