On scarred earth, amongst blackened trees, a community gathers to try to understand what has happened. They grapple with their memories, and try to make sense of it all. In the midst of the chaos, a father searches for his daughter. How do we carry on when our world falls apart?

A powerful vision of the beauty and brutality of contemporary Australian life, Tom Holloway’s extraordinary play explores our response to catastrophic bushfires, the challenges of being a parent, society’s sexualisation of pre-teen girls, and the significance of love when faced with tragedy. Directed by Patrick McCarthy, multi-award winning independent company Mutation Theatre present the Victorian premier of this important work by one of Australia’s most talented playwrights.

“A resonant play that confirms Holloway as among the best stage writers in the country right now” - Jason Blake (The Sydney Morning Herald)

"Completely enchanting...if this is the new generation of theatre makers, the future is looking good"- Alison Croggan (Theatre Notes) on Mutation Theatre.
