The Hive Collective and Metro Arts present
by Zoey Dawson
In a messy lounge room in Brunswick East, a young woman starts to write a play - an important play, an instant classic, a story that matters. But her convict drama insists on unravelling and now our corseted protagonist has 5000 words to write and an Ottolenghi fish dinner to prepare.
How can a playwright make a difference when she doubts every word she places on the page? And does literary immortality really matter when the world is about to end?
Zoey Dawson mocks the Australian canon and her own artistic ambition in this meta-theatrical black comedy.
