“Loved it! A wonderfully thought-provoking, funny, emotional and sensitive play.” Elizabeth, parent – Arcadia Valley State School

SYNOPSIS
Tilly and Ben are twins about to leave their remote property to go to boarding school in town. Together, they create an extraordinary imaginative world, where worst nightmares and greatest dreams are vividly enacted. A play about young people in transition—from primary to high school, from small community to big town, from home to boarding school—Ithaca Road unpacks fears of changes and speaks to strategies for resilience. Incorporating contemporary cross-arts practices including puppetry, projections, and physical theatre, Ithaca Road seamlessly combines naturalistic and non-naturalistic performance styles in its exploration of growing up.

PRODUCTION HISTORY
The premier production was performed at Metro Arts, Brisbane on the 8th of October 2010 and toured central Queensland.
