Jurassica

Date: 16 Aug 2018

Dan Giovannoni’s new play weaves the past and present, exploring what it is to migrate, to be displaced and to spend the rest of your life searching for home. 

Ralph and Sara migrated from Tuscany in the 1950s to their concrete-front-yard house in suburban Moorabbin. Their son, Ichlis, never really forgave them for his misunderstood name, and grandson Luca is struggling to talk to his father or grandfather. Until one night Ralph is rushed to hospital and, through an unlikely connection with Kaja, an interpreter who herself fled wartorn Belgrade, Luca learns to reconnect.

Told with humour and pathos in English and Italian, this critically acclaimed Red Stitch production was the winner of the 2015 Green Room Award for Best New Australian Writing.
