Motherhood, dignity and death
Due to COVID-19 this production has been postponed. We hope to bring it to our stages at a later date. Please view our online brochure here.
Cat ran away to her Grandma’s place in Coral Bay, leaving her husband and a newborn baby in Perth. Her mother Jenny has flown twelve hundred kilometres to drag Cat home. Her grandmother Trish wants them both to nick off, so she can die alone. Three generations of women wrestle their obligations towards each other, expectations of motherhood, and the right to die with dignity.
Coral Bay blends humour and pathos to explore the obligations between daughters and their mothers, and mothers to their own bodies. A family drama that looks at what we really owe each other and what we owe to ourselves.
