The Linden Solution

Date: 19 Apr 2021

The Linden Solution tells the story of civil servant Hannah Marr, whose beloved hometown is suffering from stagnation, drought, boomer corruption and millennial apathy.

Using her unique position of power, Hannah conspires to cure society’s ills with a bold political experiment: a series of neo-fascist policies designed to make Linden great again. Tensions escalate and consequences mount as Hannah realises how little control she actually has… and how easily the quiet Australians of Linden take to a sanitised form of hate.

Part TED-talk, part confession, The Linden Solution is a reality-blurring piece of theatre that unfolds against the backdrop of our own backyard. Presented by Ratcatch, this latest collaboration from Alexander Lee-Rekers and Camilla Turnbull is a captivating and unflinching look into politics, propaganda and extremism in contemporary Australia.

The Linden Solution is Our Town for the alt-right era: a provocative new entry into the Australian theatrical canon.

Alexander Lee-Rekers’ play is directed by Camilla Turnbull. Laura Djanegara, Mason Phoumirath, Patrick Cullen and Lib Campbell star.
