By Tahli Corin
27 March - 20 April 2013
Hannah is 32, single and slightly overweight. Hannah has eczema and lives alone with a cat named Cupid. Hannah reads the love messages in the commuter magazine religiously, hoping one day, one day, there will be one just for her.
But when Hannah goes missing while waiting for a mystery man at a Sydney train station, her friends and family are left to question whether their actions played a part.
Meanwhile, the investigating detective is discovering just how easy it is to disappear when no one is looking for you.
Girl in Tan Boots is a delicate and funny play about love, loneliness and the struggle to stay visible in a big, busy city.
It marks the first SBW Stables Theatre appearance for Griffin Studio playwright Tahli Corin and director Susanna Dowling (The Kiss).
Collide and Griffin Independent present this World Premiere
SPECIAL EVENT: FREE MAGIC SHOW
Post show, Thursday 18 April
You may have heard whispers about the use of magic in Girl in Tan Boots. The cast and crew have been working with Bruce Glen, The Gentleman Magician to achieve a little bit of wonder in the show. After the show on Thursday 18th of April, Bruce will step out of his role as magic consultant, and onto the stage to present some of his own magical work. That’s two shows for the price of one! So if you haven’t already scooped up your ticket for Girl in Tan Boots, Thursday 18th of April will be a night of extra magic and wonder at Griffin.
