This edition is out of print. The play is now available in Benedict Andrews Collected Plays.

A family under threat – from what, we don’t know – hires a young security guard, Chris. He spends long hours, day and night, by the pool, watching. One by one, in their private universes of plate glass and good food, each family member is drawn to Chris. A dangerous game of fantasy and privilege begins.

Every Breath is an extraordinary debut written by a theatre-maker at the top of his game. Darkly funny, sweetly eerie, and strangely familiar, this is about what happens when prosperity gives us the licence to see the world as we want to see it.

Cast : 3M, 2F

BENEDICT ANDREWS is one of the most sought after Australian theatre directors of his generation. Dividing his time between Sydney and Berlin, he is a regular guest at the Sydney Theatre Company, Company B Belvoir, and the Schaubühne am Lehniner Platz. He is known for startling adaptations of works from the classical repertoire alongside plays by contemporary dramatists. His marathon adaptation of Shakespeare’s history plays, The War of the Roses, was the theatrical highlight of the 2009 Sydney Festival, winning six Helpmann awards.
