We are currently working on two Festival pieces. There are also play readings and other social activities, to keep us busy. Please contact us to find out more, or just drop by the Northbourne on a Wednesday.
The aging bag lady on the streets who opens the play is the eponymous Primrose Way, once a professional actress. As she reminisces and her story unfolds, we see her enthusiastic youthful self retracing her career in the theatre, and reliving the memories of her ambitious mother, herself a professional actress, who delights in playing a number of other characters who drift through Primrose’s recollections.

A man sits on a bench at the edge of an abyss watching the human race rush into it. Along comes a second man contemplating "a heroic dive." What is the abyss and what are these men doing here? Terrifying concepts and visions of deepening mysteries emerge from their confrontation, and they conclude that life is precious after all.

"Pretention is avoided with Ingenius narrative turns and electric repartee." - Los Angeles Times
"Dialogue riddled with humor and empathy for the human condition and the decisions of life and death. A fine piece of writing." - Dramalogue
