Time. It slows when you’re in love.
Stopping you dead in your tracks, when you first catch sight of her. Stretching for an eternity, as you wait for that phone call. Speeding up and evaporating over an afternoon together. Beating so quickly it just might burst.
Those Who Fall in Love Like Anchors Dropped Upon the Ocean Floor is a love story that transcends time – moving from a Cold War Russian submarine, through a Parisian street, to an Appalachian snow field. It follows four stories and eleven characters as they navigate that timeless act of falling in love.
Utterly charming, quirky and funny, Those Who Fall in Love Like Anchors Dropped Upon the Ocean Floor is written by multi award-winning playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer and comes to Griffin direct from two sell-out, critically acclaimed Perth seasons.
