Take your seat at home over three nights as three different love stories in adversity and separation play out in live and prerecorded scenes.
On the first night, revisit the well-known plot of Romeo and Juliet with a tech twist. The world’s most famous lovers are using contemporary technology to interact, but it keeps failing and they lose contact. Juliet goes in search of Romeo on various social media platforms.
On night two, be transported to 1918 to follow Betty and Allan in a vividly imaginative depiction of the impact of the Spanish Flu and the horrors of WW1 on a young Sydney couple.
On the final night, join a virtual dinner date with two young men, Conor and Ryan, who have just met online. Audience members will be invited to cook the same meal a few hours before the show and to enjoy it while they watch the date unfold…
Directed by leading experimental Australian performance, theatre and installation artist Deborah Pollard.
