Death-in-Bowengabbie-72APRIL 3 – APRIL 13

A big, black, tender-hearted comedy written by one of Australia’s hottest writing talents, award winner Caleb Lewis.

Oscar has made a great life in the city after escaping the burden of his small town family history. He has a fiancé, a new job on the horizon and seems to have moved on from his tragic past. But a series of mysterious deaths in the family bring him back to his home town of Bowengabbie, time and again, for the understandably sad yet strangely festive funerals. Is it love that is bring- ing him back? A tragic twist of fate? Or is something more sinister at play…?

A gripping tale that will make you laugh, gasp and possibly get strange hankering for popcorn or sausage rolls.

“This one-man show is one of the best that I have ever seen… the whole show oozes talent.”
– Theatre Australia

“Faultless…a fabulous package truly satisfying on all sorts of levels.” – The Post

“A superb example of the potential of the single-actor monologue… it felt like I was clapping for a larger cast than just one man at the conclusion of the show.
4 out of 5 stars.” – Arts Hub

2010 Winner of Black Swan Theatre’s Richard Burton Award for Best New Play
