New Fitz Play #4
THE WIND IN THE UNDERGROUND
by SAM O'SULLIVAN
Directed by LUCY CLEMENTS
23 MAY - 3 JUNE
Red Line Productions presents the New Fitz 2017 Program.
Proudly presented by Poor Tom's Gin & Mark Blumer, and supported by Playwriting Australia and ambassador Louis Nowra.
After a year abroad, Simon returns home to discuss the sale of his childhood house with his older siblings. While away on his self prescribed pilgrimage, he discovered a new sense of independence and responsibility that he is keen to display to his family. But do siblings ever let us grow in the ways we would like? And did his leaving in the first place, damage one of his closest relationships?
Coming to the Old Fitz Theatre in May, The Wind in the Underground is Sam O’Sullivan’s response play to John Patrick Shanley’s, Doubt. Four siblings switch between their child and adult selves as the play examines the impact of the sibling bond on our personalities and questions if these complex and sacred relationships can change over time.
