And No More Shall We Part

Tom Holloway
 
After a long and successful marriage, Pam and Don are still very much in love. But Pam is ill and has to make a heartbreaking decision that will transform both their lives. She does so in the only way she knows how – quickly, pragmatically, and resolutely. Don behaves in the only way he knows how – struggling to keep up but desperate not to lose touch.

And No More Shall We Part follows Pam and Don’s halting, humorous and devastating attempt at the impossible – to begin to say goodbye to each other after a lifetime together.

Don't Say the Words

Tom Holloway
 
The wheels in the gravel driveway. The door. Him coming home. I was waiting because I hadn't seen him in a long time. I hadn't been alone with him in so long…

After a decade under siege a city has finally fallen. But ten years of rage have taken their toll. For an officer returning from this epic overseas campaign, it is time to put the horrors of battle behind him, and to take back his place at the family table.

For the officer's wife, it is time to take her revenge…
   
Tom Holloway's ‘epic-in-miniature' is inspired by Aeschylus' Agamemnon and a truly contemporary Australian landscape — with breathtaking results.

Fatherland

Tom Holloway
 
Together we have something and share something that other people will never understand.

In Fatherland what starts as an innocent evening of ice cream and DVDs derails quickly into much more dangerous territory in this heart-stopping new play - a complex examination of the destructive cycle of desire in an illicit relationship between a father and daughter.

Review
This is a play about love. A love misplaced. A complicated, tainted, socially unacceptable love, but a deep, rich and painful love all the same. The play demands a holding back of judgement and the engagement with the possibilities of such a thing. - Caroline Steinbeis,  Director

Forget Me Not

Tom Holloway
 
Gerry is almost 60, and he is going to meet his mother for the first time since he was three. His daughter Sally has had it up to here with him and his problems. The old lady lives somewhere in the UK. Liverpool, according to the records. So Gerry is going there to find out what made him who he is.

Holloway’s brilliant leap of imagination has been to set this story not at its outset half a century ago, but here and now. He has written a series of raw, often achingly beautiful conversations between members of a scattered family. Drawing it all together is Gerry’s extraordinary, precarious bid to finally learn what it means to love and belong to a family.

Love Me Tender

Tom Holloway
 

Love Me Tender is a play of beauty and emotional power. Inspired by Euripides' Iphigenia in Aulis, Tom Holloway has orchestrated a thrilling vision of contemporary Australia drawn from our experiences of the catastrophic bushfires, of raunch culture and pre-teen sexuality, and of our domestic rituals. This is exquisite writing about our fears, the expectations of fathers, the extremities of love, and the need for action when the world becomes undone.
