By Marcel Dorney. Illawarra Performing Arts Centre, Wollongong (NSW). June 5 – 16, 2012.
Merrigong Theatre Company’s staging of playwright Marcel Dorney’s original work Charcoal Creek was an intimate take on the darker side of Australia’s early history.
Director Anne-Louise Rentell and her team have put together a flawless production.
The opening sequence begins with Brigid’s (Catherine Moore) observations of the world around her, sometimes amusing, envious and a general reflection of life in the Illawarra.
