Back at the Dojo
Lally Katz

Lally Katz has spent the past decade turning her life into a series of hilarious and theatrically gorgeous plays. This time it's her parents' turn.

After nearly losing his mind in the abandon of 1960s America, young Danny (who happens to share a name with Lally's father) finds his way again with the help of an enigmatic sensei. At a New Jersey karate dojo, he and other mislaid souls make their way back into the world, and Danny bumps into a woman called Lois... Meanwhile, in present-day Australia, Danny's long-lost grandson has decided to become Patti Smith...

From the marvellous mind of Lally Katz comes a modern romance about wanderlust, love and karate. Inspired by the true events that brought her parents together, Back at the Dojo is a ravishing, nourishing story about the myths families live by.

Cast : 4F, 7M + extras, doubling possible
