A Work-In-Progress Showing

A new play by Fen Carter. At turns hauntingly beautiful and viscerally atmospheric, The Cane is a meditation on the lives we make for ourselves in order to survive, the things that bind us to our past, and the easy isolation that can befall remote communities.

A run-down sugarcane farm in North Queensland. A brother and sister remain. Pandora stays to honour the passing of their mother and sister. Peter cannot bring himself to protest. The house is falling apart, the curling wallpaper filled with unspeakable memories. And boy next door William, with his eyes set on bigger things, has the two of them in the palm of his hand.

As part of this play's creative development, this is a staged reading and will include a short discussion with creatives and actors, plus opportunities to ask questions and submit feedback.

Artwork by Peta Kishawi.
