How far would you go to help someone else?
You believe in a fair go for all… until your ex shows up on your doorstep.
Yellingbo is an ingenious, darkly witty 3-hander from award-winning Tee O’Neill (Best Possible World, Barassi) about the vulnerability of asylum seekers, set in an ordinary Australian living room where all appears ordinary…until it isn’t.
In a series of startling revelations, Yellingbo poses burning questions about love and responsibility. When it’s time to put our values into action, who do we save? Ourselves? Family? A stranger? What if family turns out not to be family…? Yellingbo is inspired by the playwright’s experience working and living with Eastern European asylum seekers.
“Tee O’Neill is one of the brightest lights of new Australian Drama.”
– David Williamson (Gallipoli, The Year of Living Dangerously)
“Insightful direction by Karen Berger.”
