By Tom Holloway
4 - 26 July 2008
After a decade under siege – a city has finally fallen.
But ten years have taken their toll on an officer returning from this overseas campaign. Attempting to put the horrors of war behind him, it is time to see his wife once more. Except the woman he remembers is not the same woman she once was. With a new lover beside her, a very different battle must now play out – inside the family home.
Don’t Say the Words, a brand new work from Tom Holloway, opens at the SBW Stables Theatre on July 4. Inspired by Aeschylus’ Agamemnon, yet set in a contemporary Australian landscape, Don’t Say the Words is an ‘epic-in-miniature’.
Tom Holloway‘s audacious new work tells of love pushing individuals to unrecognisable extremes. Creating an epic canvas for this exhilarating puzzle play, the spare but resonant text’s shifting truth unlocks themes of desire, sacrifice, free will… and revenge.
