DescriptionWinner of the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Drama and the Victorian Prize for Literature, Mary Anne Butler’s poetic, evocative play receives it's long-awaited Melbourne premiere from 15-25 November 2018 at fortyfivedownstairs.
A car crash in the Central Desert. A broken man, about to leave his wife. A damaged woman, struggling to stay intact. Broken entwines the stories of three complex lives as they unfold on a single fateful night in the heart of the Northern Territory’s desert country.
Poetic, visceral and extremely moving, this haunting story of resilience and survival takes you into the heart of its characters and the Australian landscape, offering up a devastatingly fresh look at our national identity.
Wrestling with matters of chance, choice, hope and fate, it poses the question: When you find yourself empty, how do you start again?
