An absurdist original play about loneliness and human connection set on the fringes of … Canberra…
Discarded from society and alienated from his own existence, Matthew seeks purpose to his life through a campaign to improve the intersection of Gundaroo Drive and the Gungahlin Drive Extension. Missy is spooked by a threatening presence outside her window and needs a confidant. Reluctantly thrust together in the mortal struggle with the meaning of each other’s lives and the apparitions that stand between them, the only thing that can save them is in short supply. Compassion.
‘Slip Lane’ peels back the veneer of suburbia to reveal the unlikely array of everyday joys, cruelties and lives it holds within. With Gungahlin at its heart, it ranges from the local to the metaphysical to speak about Australia today.
Written and directed by Julian Hobba.
