Sunday performances were are at 5pm with all other performances at 8pm.
Greg set the play on a health retreat near Mount Warning and it deals with a man whose obsessive approach to his art has alienated him from his personal relationships. When his beautiful younger wife meets the handsome wild dog hunter and the artist is reunited with his former model their lives are led down paths that they should have taken years before, by the sinister owner and chief therapist of the health retreat. There is humour, biting satire and searing drama in this tender and brutal play.
Featuring Greg Aitken, Cate Feldmann, Robynn Goddard, Sam Hemphill and Mike Russo and directed by Dominick Reyntiens,
