Theo rages against the age of unearned celebrity. She doesn’t want to make a mark on the world or do anything but live a decent and dignified life. If only her family would cooperate!

Her father desperately chases fame, her boyfriend embraces notoriety as an internet troll and her mother is concerned with what the church thinks, even though she’s only in it for the cake stalls.

And then there’s the baby, of course. She’s a problem. Life has never been further from ordinary…

A battle across generations, Out of the Ordinary captures the dilemma of navigating the modern world, where an obsession with what we leave behind threatens to swallow our present.

  1. Sarah

    An exciting piece of contemporary Australian work, this play offers a dynamic challenge to actors, directors and audiences alike. The characters instantly recognisable and endearing; Vickery Howe’s wit and wisdom tackles the generational gap within families, the universal need to do something that matters, and the murky waters of modern politics. Incredibly funny, with moments of real emotional resonance, ‘Out of the Ordinary’ is a unique play that deserves to be read and staged across the country.
