A Clockwork Orange: A Play with Music is a collision of Shakespearean prose and bad behaviour that tackles questions of free will, violence, power and the pains of growing up for a 2022 audience.
PAST THE SHALLOWS
October 11–November 6, 2022
Although Harry and Miles technically live with their dad, his life as an abalone diver often leaves the brothers home alone. And, when Harry strikes up an unlikely friendship during the school holidays their world is tilted. Past the Shallows is a gut-wrenching exploration of mortality, family mysteries and the nuances of brutality and tenderness within masculinity.
Adapted from Favel Parrett's award-winning debut novel by playwright Julian Larnach, Past the Shallows is an homage to brotherhood.
