This is a beautifully rendered story about our need to care (or be cared for) no matter the distance that age, race and disability might place between us.

Drawing on her lived experience, playwrite Martyna Majok introduces us to four seemingly disconnected characters whose lives are at a crossroads. There’s John — a wealthy successful PhD student with cerebral palsy ­— who hires the secretive Jess to be his new carer. And then there’s Eddie, an unemployed truck driver, desperately trying to reconcile with his ex-wife Ani, who has become a wheelchair user after an accident.

Told with deft humour and enormous heart, the Australian premiere of this highly-lauded work is directed by Priscilla Jackman (The Appleton Ladies’ Potato Race) and Dan Daw, also appearing as John, with icon Philip Quast as Eddie, and Kate Hood as Ani.

Former-carer turned Playwright Martyna Majok won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for this play in 2018.
