By Wayne Tunks. True West Theatre. Riverside Theatres, Paramatta. September 14 to 22, 2012.
A child has been abducted.
10 years on, a mother clings to hope, turning her son’s bedroom into a shrine, adding the latest gift to a pile of unopened birthday gifts, accumulated over a decade. She continues to progressively withdraw from the world, her husband and her surviving son, with painful ramifications.
At Parramatta’s Riverside Theatres, True West Theatre fosters works written or set in Sydney’s west, giving local works a first airing for local and broader audiences.
