"That's what West is: shiny cars and loud things, people coming, people going-movement. Those who don't know any better, they come in to the neighbourhood and lock their windows and drive on through, never stopping before they get somewhere else."

Charcoal chicken, a white Pontiac Trans Am, the Council pool. Michael is living in the shadow of his older brother Dom. The biggest guy in the school. Best car in the West.The guy who just can't help but grab everyone's attention. The guy with the girlfriend with the huge-arse hair.

When he is gone Michael roams the streets, navigating life, friendship, love and family. The Incredible Here and Now is a poignant rollercoaster ride celebrating life, first love, family and new beginnings, traversing the streets of Western Sydney.

Adapted for the stage by international award-winning local author and playwright Felicity Castagna.
