Told through 28 snapshots, this dark love story tells the tale of two young people trying to claim their place in society.
Emma and Jay are lovers, isolated and outcast from society. Money is scarce and the streets are dark and unforgiving. Desperate to prove themselves and change their fortunes, they take the law into their own hands. They’re good at it.
Set in Melbourne in 1990 during a national recession.
'Veronica Thomas is outstanding in her characterisation as she probes away as Emma and pushes Jay’s buttons.'
'Matthew Connell brings to bear a hangdog look in Jay that only lifts after the “thrill” of another robbery or post coital.'
'Director Jennifer Sarah Dean ensures the play moves along at pace. Scene changes (28 vignettes) are swift and seamless.'
'Plaudits to set and costume designer Chelsea Neate.'
ALEX FIRST | THE BLURB
'Veronica Thomas is a revelation in her role as strung-out Emma'
NAOMI CARDWELL | THEATRE TRAVELS
'Keene's text is well realised here.'
MICHAEL BRINDLEY | STAGE WHISPERS
