Bittersweet rom-com with swords
If you hit restart enough times, can you fix a broken relationship? Ellandar Productions proudly presents 10,000, an imaginative riff on the breakup drama.
A young couple play a video game to help save their flatlining marriage – but when the game becomes a little too real, they find themselves fighting for more than just their relationship. Can these twenty-somethings learn to put down their swords, or will old patterns die hard?
Written by and featuring Jessica Messenger (The Standover Man) and Nick Maclaine (Second Hands), this daring new play deftly blends action, fantasy and drama. Can people perfect flawed relationships? Is love just an excuse we use to hurt people we care about? 10,000 tackles these questions with heart and humour against a backdrop that’s part science fiction, part high fantasy, but always profoundly close to home. A first-class team of artists with direction from Hellie Turner, with Perth’s resident fight maestro Andy Fraser.
Pick a side, choose a weapon… this is Before Sunrise meets Scott Pilgrim Versus The World.
