M. Rock

Date: 16 May 2022

Tracey is 18 and a little impulsive.

She’s meant to start a nursing degree in March, but right now she just wants to dance all night. So she heads off on a European holiday (remember those?), clutching the lucky rabbit’s foot her grandmother gave her.

Mabel is your typical grandmother. She plays piano for The Players and knits for the Africa appeal. But when Tracey skips her flight home and doesn’t get in touch, Mabel leaves her stable life to go find her.

So what if she’s never been further than Canberra? She ends up in Berlin, and before long she’s over her jetlag, clubbing until sunrise with people who seize life with both hands. As the nights go on, Tracey and Mabel keep missing each other, but they’re finding themselves.

After burning the house down in ATYP’s 2014 co-production with Sydney Theatre Company, Valerie Bader returns as Mabel in this life-affirming banger of a play from Lachlan Philpott.
