Before the Meeting

Date: 13 Apr 2022

Every day, Gail and the regular members of her early morning group set up for their meeting in the exact same way: Nicole makes the coffee, Gail arranges the chairs, and Ron complains.

As they forge a path toward sobriety and wellbeing, they come to rely on the routine and each other.

But when Gail’s estranged granddaughter reopens old wounds, Gail knows it will take more than coffee, chairs, and companionship to keep her life from falling apart.

Kim Hardwick directs the Sydney premiere of Adam Bock’s play, which examines how to truly make amends on the road to recovery.

Alex Malone, Tim McGarry, Jane Phegan, Ariadne Sgouros and Tim Walker feature.
