A play in a pool
Winner: Best Theatre Award, Adelaide Fringe 2017
Winner: Weekly John Chataway Innovation Award, Adelaide Fringe 2017
In 2016, playwright Emily Steel had a termination after her baby was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. This is her story. It’s sad and funny, familiar and surprising, not self-righteous or guilt-ridden but complex and truthful. Come sit by the pool, put your feet in the water, and listen.
Directed by Daisy Brown (Green Room Award-winner for Mützenball), peformed by Tiffany Lyndall Knight (the Hybrid in Battlestar Galactica) and composed by Mario Späte (aka electronic producer Badcop).
