“I got one son, that’s why I’m ‘ere to make this right for ‘im. Don’t matter what I bin through.”
An ugly incident at her son’s football game results in time in jail and a life-time ban from future footy matches for Meeka. Now she wants the ban lifted. But Jane, the injured party, wants blood. Mediation is a last-ditch, volatile shot at negotiating some form of mutual justice. Can these two women move from hurt and hatred, towards reconciliation and forgiveness?
Banned is the thought-provoking professional debut by emerging playwright Barbara Hostalek, and is directed by the award-winning Hellie Turner.
