'We've missed you. Haven't we Truck? There wasn't anyone out there attracted the flies like you did.'


Dog-tired and in search of drink, they do their best to distract themselves, coming together in a makeshift mess hall. But a stormy evening of shared memories soon takes a strange and unexpected turn… From the writer of Bastard Boys and Brides of Christ comes a gripping, contemporary tale of free-will and responsibility in the face of great temptation. With explosive characters and a wily sense of humour, Strange Attractor is a stunning portrait of small-team camaraderie in a globalised market.
‘Smith’s script is well-crafted, witty in a nicely savage way and very good at evoking in a few brief encounters and revelatory speeches the past experiences that drive these desperately lonely characters’ John McCallum, The Australian
‘…the text opens up to reveal a tour de force that is a requiem for a nation that should have bigger dreams’ Nick Pickard, Sun Herald
‘The director, Nick Marchand, is disciplined with tension and release of emotion in an expertly paced production.’ Jason Blake, SMH
