By Matthew Blackwood Hume. King Street Theatre, Newtown. May 1 – 13, 2012.
A new Australian play, produced on the smell of an oily rag, and presented as a profit share, rates for me as way preferable to some very ordinary new plays I’ve seen with big bucks and big names thrown at them in mainstream seasons, where I tend to resent my share of any taxpayer subsidy. There’s honest raw energy, as everyone gives generously of themselves for little or no remuneration, in ‘Off-OfF-Broadway’ type venues, to get new work up, even if it is somewhat undercooked.
