After The Ball

After The Ball

6 March - 21 March 2015

David Williamson

Directed by: Hayley Derwort

Stephen and Judy live on opposite sides of the world. Their lifestyles and outlooks could not be further apart. But they are brother and sister and when they are reunited at the bedside of their dying mother, family memories painfully and mercilessly return. David Williamson has created a family scenario that is frighteningly recognisable. At times hilarious, at times tortuous, After the Ball is a frank, critical look at Australian suburban family life in the 1960s to the 1990s. It traces the aspirations, the disappointments and the realities that test family life at a time when social change has never been more bewildering and makes a plea for reconciliation. It is a deeply moving and highly rewarding play.
