Kangaroo

Date: 18 Aug 2021

In a small town, three strangers become intricately entwined by the events of one fateful night.

Melissa, a mother at 18, is escaping a home life with an abusive father only to realise that history is repeating.

Mick tends the sewage facility and collects the town’s garbage. Once a bright child, betrayal by a trusted adult forms his home-grown philosophy about life’s disposability.

Barbara is a former university lecturer in art settling into country life. Her academic understanding of death is confronted by the cycle of life.

Across three chapters audiences listen in on the stories of Melissa, Mick and Barbara as they navigate a foreboding landscape where the stillness of country air covers hidden deeds.

A story of intrigue set in regional NSW, written for the stage by Miranda Gott and originally scheduled for The Joan’s Q Theatre stage in August, is now being transformed into an online audio experience for theatre lovers stuck in lockdown.
