Lamb

music and lyrics by Mark Seymour

Jane Bodie
 
“Sometimes people leave, they go away and you don’t see them anymore. And then sometimes they come back.”

A bittersweet story of Annie, Kathleen and Patrick—three siblings born onto their parents’ property— Lamb explores the lies and secrets kept, loves lost and opportunities missed. Told with subtlety and humour, Lamb spans 40 years, telling an intimate story of one family and rural life. Mark Seymour’s original songs feature as part of the story throughout the production.

‘One of the smartest and most moving plays that I’ve seen in quite some time...’  Michael Cathcart, The Hub on Stage (ABC RN)

This Year's Ashes

Jane Bodie
 
Ellen lives a shiny life in the heart of a shiny city. She hates her office job, the alcohol isn’t making her as drunk as it used to, and she seems to be allergic to the water. But there is always the company of strangers in this city – the stranger, the better.

So she’s doing fine. Except, savage grief has Ellen in its grip and it’s getting tighter. And the anonymous guy she’s going home with may not be so anonymous.

A hilarious, touching urban fable of connection and redemption, of moving and moving on.
