Morgan Rose

So there’s this family having dinner in a shitty house.

And one of them is Xan.

A small town in the middle of nowhere. A family is talking about everything and anything except what’s really going on. Through fantasy and hyperrealism, desert, 6:29pm ponders if it’s possible to ever truly know someone you love. Morgan Rose is one of the most exciting emerging playwrights in Australia, bringing her unique humour and attention to detail to this heart-breaking, finely wrought new work developed through the Red Stitch INK program.
