|The Middle Way|
Meet SUV driving, pedigree dog owning, mother of twins, Phillipa. Her daughter’s mental health requires intensive monitoring, husband’s ego constant stroking and she is forever reminded of her estranged Evangelical mother. Along comes Marcus, a devout born-again Buddhist, who brings with him the promise of new beginnings – if only her past would stop getting in the way.
A new play by local playwright, Lucy Combe and set in contemporary Adelaide, The Middle Way explores the identities we create for ourselves and those put upon us; how the events of the past ricochet for years to come and the eternal pull of spiritual practices.
Following the success of Matt Hawkins’ Frank Forbes and the Yahoo Boy at the Bakehouse Theatre in May 2018, The Middle Way is the latest offering from South Australian Playwrights Theatre, a company committed to developing and producing the works of local South Australian writers, both established and new (saplaywrights.com).
