The Australian premiere of Lucy Kirkwood’s international hit is a tale of sibling rivalry set against a backdrop of scientific discovery.
Alice (Jacqueline McKenzie) is a scientist working towards an important new discovery. Jenny (Mandy McElhinney) is her sister, and believes any conspiracy she reads on the internet. They couldn’t be more different. So, when tragedy forces them together, the impact has unexpected consequences.
It’s 2008 and Alice’s team of physicists at the Large Hadron Collider are searching for the Higgs Boson, stitching together the fabric of the cosmos. But at home, Alice’s family is falling apart at the seams.
Mosquitoes is a story of facts and feelings that reaches to the edges of time and space without ever losing touch with its very human heart.
Jessica Arthur directs a cast featuring Annie Byron, Jason Chong, Mandy McElhinney, Jacqueline McKenzie, Angela Nica Sullen, Louis Seguier, Nikita Waldron and Charles Wu.
