South Australian Playwrights Theatre present: ‘The Middle Way’, written by Lucy Combe and directed by Samantha Riley.
Meet SUV driving, pedigree dog owning, mother of twins, Phillipa. Her daughter’s mental health requires intensive monitoring, husband’s ego constant stroking and she is forever reminded of her estranged Evangelical mother. Along comes Marcus, a devout born-again Buddhist, who brings with him the promise of new beginnings – if only her past would stop getting in the way. “Wherever you go, you take yourself with you.”
The Middle Way is a new and evocative play about family secrets, reinvention and the allure of a doctrine.
The play features a stellar cast including: Kate Bonney, Brendan Cooney, Katie O’Reilly and Harper Robb
