Lake Disappointment

Lachlan Philpott & Luke Mullins
 
Kane and I were both rising stars. I was rising to the top of the hand-modelling world and Kane was doing his plays. Kane got his first action film and I became his double. We clicked. Everyone said so.

Kane is one of the world’s biggest movie stars. His body double has been there from the start, sharing more than just looks with his famous counterpart. The body double and Kane are to work on Lake Disappointment—an independent arts film that might see them win prestigious awards and fame.

This one-person play of mirrors and mannerisms explores the strange world of the body double. It makes unique contributions to timeless theatrical concepts of images and representation. Lake Disappointment is an unusual new work about ego, self-fashioning, and illusions.

"This is the most intriguing work of theatre in Sydney at the moment." Sydney Morning Herald

"An elaborate assemblage of reflections and surfaces that constantly asks you to think about the construction of narrative and identity and ‘art’." Time Out

M Rock

Lachlan Philpott
 
M.Rock is a magical new play, based on a true story, about the enduring joys of music, dancing ad self-discovery.

In his distinctive language, Philpott charts the fortunes of 18-year-old Tracy and her grandmother Mabel. Tracy has just finished school, she’s bought a round-the-world ticket and is flying away to soak up experience.

By contrast, Mabel is stable. She plays piano for The Players, knits for the African appeal and looks after Hilda’s cat.

When Tracy misses her plane home, Mabel sets off on a quest to find her granddaughter. But what she finds is her inner DJ.

Michael Swordfish

Lachlan Philpott
 
'You read about those kids who know they don't belong. They are in some kind of prison until they turn 18, stuck in the backseat of the car between two kids who do belong.'

What would happen if someone you knew disappeared? How would you react? How would your school react? An assembly called, a footy game postponed, a class interrupted. But who is Michael Swordfish? And who knows where he’s gone?

For two years award-winning playwright Lachlan Philpott collaborated with students from Newington College, Sydney, to bring their voices and worlds to life. Michael Swordfish is the exciting product of this collaboration: a play that traverses the tumultuous landscape of the teenage experience with a sober truth and darkly comic voice.

Winner of the AWGIE Award for Youth and Community Theatre (2017).

Silent Disco

Lachlan Philpott
 
Tamara and Jasyn are in love. Jasyn lives with Aunty and his brother Dane is in prison for dealing. Jasyn wants to take Tamara to the formal, but he hasn’t got the cash.

In a world of absent mothers and missing fathers, Mrs Petchall battles to keep another year of students out of the ranks of the vanished. The Outsiders is on the syllabus again, but instead of Socs and Greasers, this is the world of Speds and Skanks – fuelled by Red Bull and powered by iPods. It can be hard to find your own rhythm when everyone is marching to the beat of a different drum.

The Trouble With Harry

Lachlan Philpott
 
Harry Crawford and his wife Annie seem happy enough. Together they lead quiet, unexceptional lives in the suburbs of 1920s Sydney, working and raising a child. But when Josephine arrives at the door, it sets in train a series of events that will result in an astounding revelation. Based on the extraordinary true story of the ‘Man­Woman’ murder that shocked turn­-of­-the-century Australians, The Trouble with Harry is a disorienting tale of deception and enigma which poses an essential, human question: can we ever really know what lies in the heart and mind of someone else?

“Without doubt, this is the best new play to come out of this country in a long while … A play that is unafraid to navigate the clichés of the Aussie period drama, that cuts into our cultural prejudice and unresolved gender assumptions, that squarely lays the blame back in the laps of its audience, is a play worth seeing. That it is also poetic and rich and moving renders it unmissable.”

Truck Stop

Lachlan Philpott
 
Sam and Kelly live out west. They spend their lives waiting for texts, for boyfriends and those bitches in Year Ten to leave school so they can have somewhere decent to hang. But the longest wait is till the end of school, and waiting can be deadly.

Bored one recess and with double maths looming, the girls escape through the hole in the fence. Hang out at the truck stop on the highway at the picnic table with the flies. Read graffiti. Talk about sex, prostitutes, Lady Gaga.

When a truck pulls up. Their hearts race. The truckie’s kind of young. And hot.

Sam issues Kelly a dare...
