Home Country + The One

Home Country + The One

from $35.00

22 Sep - 01 Oct | 1 hour 35 minutes Darlo Drama

Will a millennial hot mess keep running from herself? Can a Gen X feminist survive the Tinder trash fire? New works by Sydney playwrights Stephanie Reeves and Mel Jensen.

World premiere of two one-act plays.

By Stephanie Reeves
Directed by Glen Hamilton and Romney Hamilton

Dot, a British woman in search of answers, escapes to the faraway land of Oz. At a campsite overlooking Uluru, she is forced to share her tent with a grumpy stranger and amidst the ancient landscape, an unlikely friendship is formed as both women are confronted with the past.

A comedy drama, 'Home Country' explores what it means to truly find home.

Written and directed by Mel Jensen

Think you know how men really talk to women online? With an average of one Australian woman dying every week at the hands of her intimate parter, Tinder is more than a minefield of dick pics, catfish and Andrew Tate fans; it can lead to murder.

In 'The One', Mel Jensen lays bare her dating experiences, blends verbatim conversations with Sydney men and explores what it’s like to date the not-so-nice guys lurking in our digital midst.
