Gwen in Purgatory

Tommy Murphy
 
Gwen is 90. She woke up this morning to discover that purgatory is sitting alone in a new house in a new subdivision on the edge of town, trying to work out if the remote in her hand operates the TV, the air-con or the fanforced oven. But the kids are coming round and Father Ezekiel is on his way to bless the house, so the beginning of the end is looking up...

Written specially for Company B, Gwen in Purgatory is Tommy Murphy’s brilliant existential comedy about an African missionary in the wilderness of Australian suburbia. Gwen’s brood of ordinary souls is battling along in a changing world and wringing out the last drops of their matriarch’s faith.

Between them they may just find their way to some sort of forgiveness.

Holding the Man / Strangers in Between

Tommy Murphy
 
Holding the Man

Based on Timothy Conigrave’s celebrated memoir of the same name which won the 1995 UN Human Rights Award for Non-Fiction and was voted one of Australia’s top 100 most favourite books. Tommy Murphy’s stage adaptation faithfully captures the book’s heart-wrenchingly honest portrayal of a fifteen-year relationship, but also succeeds in transforming it into a unique theatrical experience that is wholly his own.

Strangers in Between

Shane has fled his family and is seeking refuge in Sydney’s Kings Cross. Confused and naïve, he meets two strangers: the ultra-urban Will, who offers brotherhood, sex and something unexpected; and Peter, a fifty-year-old gay man whose mother is dying in a nursing home. With their help – or hindrance – Shane grapples to reconcile himself with events from his past. But how can he move on when he can’t even use laundry powder?

Mark Colvin's Kidney

Tommy Murphy
 

A premiere Australian play based on actual events, showing just how startling real-life can be.

Mary-Ellen Field is a successful Australian business consultant in London–until she’s accused of betraying the secrets of her supermodel client to the press. Her life comes crashing down: her job, her health and her standing in society collapse. When it emerges that her client's phone had been hacked by reporters, Mary-Ellen sets out to defiantly restore her reputation. 

But along the way, her ideas of redemption change–she’s been interviewed by a journalist on the other side of the world, and his story puts everything into a new perspective.
