22 March - 26 April 2008
You won’t ever know. You’ll be caught out like everyone else. You’ll go up in smoke.
Twenty-five years ago, Michael Gow launched his career with an extraordinary play that took Australian theatre by storm. Forshadowing Away, it too charted a family’s epic summer journey. But this is a very different family – and a very different destination.
In blazing heat, a stolen mini hurtles towards Sydney. Inside, three teenagers from the country - Snake, Aspro and Dean - plan a future that will begin when they collect Aspro’s accident compo from the Department. Joined by Donald, an opera fanatic desperate for a change of scene, they travel to the city to take up residence in ‘the largest block of flats in the Southern Hemisphere’.
As bush fires rage on the edge of the city, they meet Desiree, a young girl from downstairs with apocalyptic predictions.
Sparks fly. Tensions escalate. Twilight approaches…
Twenty years after director Peter Kingston’s acclaimed Griffin production, The Kid returns to Sydney.
