“Sometimes there are things you can’t forget about, even when you try.”
September’s Live Night comes courtesy of our Stage Partners La Mama Theatre and Melbourne Fringe: Emily Sheehan’s acclaimed new play Hell’s Canyon.
Caitlin and Oscar used to be mates. These days Caitlin texts boys to meet her in public parks while Oscar eats his lunch in the teacher’s staffroom. But today is different. The unlikely pair share a dark secret, and so they make a pact to run. To completely disappear. Go full on missing.
Developed with Playwriting Australia at the National Play Festival, this award winning play comes to La Mama straight off the back of its highly praised Sydney tour. The production is directed by Katie Cawthorne and performed by Isabelle Ford and Conor Leach. A blistering piece of new Australian writing, this should be a must-see.
The idea of Live Nights is to see a show together, and then to chat afterwards over a drink in a informal but facilitated conversation. These nights are all about what you think: it gives you permission to buttonhole strangers in the foyer and ask them what they thought. And they’re great fun. The September Live Night is the 6.30pm performance on Friday, September 21.
Please note that as La Mama tickets are already so cheap ($30 full price), and also because this is a co-op production, there won’t be a discount on this production. It’s best to book as early as possible for this Live Night, as the small theatre means it will book out very quickly.
Details on how to book your discount tickets and Live Night arrangements are in the Live Nights Forum. Please note that that the venue is wheelchair accessible. If you have further accessibility requirements please let us know, and we will accommodate them to the best of our ability.
