We don't know – specific details. But my gut feeling. My heart, my head, all of me says…


Nicki Bloom‘s award-winning play, Tender, made a fleeting debut at Belvoir St Downstairs in 2007. A haunting examination of love, loss and grief, the production was a smash hit – and heralded a significant new playwriting talent.

Sarah can’t remember what happened in the gardens. Her memory is fractured, her husband Michael seems barely present and her parents-in-law, Yvonne and Patrick, are losing patience. What is it that she has lost and can she get it back? As we jump between events before and after that fateful night in the gardens it becomes clear that the scars that Sarah carries run deep.

In 2008, Griffin presents an extended season of now yes now’s acclaimed production, enhanced for the SBW Stables stage.
