THE OTHER END OF THE AFTERNOON

14 September – 1 October 2022

 

WINNER OF THE SILVER GULL PLAY AWARD 2021
WORLD PREMIERE, AS PART OF THE SYDNEY FRINGE FESTIVAL

 

“Obviously I don’t believe in time travel. I’m not an idiot. But just in case, I’ve gotta try.”

A young adult dramedy about Clive, a boy who wears a top hat to school (in case he goes back in time), Bianca, the cool girl who bullies him (and might have a crush on him), Xavier, the world’s worst stepbrother (who wants to be a crime lord), Dylan, the school dropkick (who’s about to snap), and (perhaps) time travel.

This delightful new Australian play, suitable for both teens and like-minded adults, explores the challenges of contemporary society and the human condition as a whole, most prominently bullying and people’s right to escape abusive situations.

Through the adventures of these flawed yet engaging characters, the audience is invited to reflect on their own worldview and place in society.

It’s a humorous, whimsical, quirky and surprisingly moving exploration of loneliness, connection, classism, family, relationships, and – most importantly – whether the grossest vegetable is eggplant or corn.

Please note: this production is suitable for ages 13 and up, and features strong language
