across the sea that separates us from them

and I can’t go there without you…
In an unnamed city at war, five young people count down the days before a boat leaves for Europe. Who will leave, who will stay, and what will their choices cost them?

‘A drama dappled with humanity and humour amid the horrors of war […] The inextinguishable spirit of laughter, of the music of life in the face of desolation, is crucial to both the play’s poignancy and appeal.’— Sydney Morning Herald
