NEW NATIONAL THEATRE COMPANY DEBUTS
WITH AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE PRODUCTION SWALLOW
BY STEF SMITH
Australia’s newest theatre company, National Theatre of Parramatta, will open its inaugural season with the potent and powerful production, Swallow, written by Olivier award winning playwright Stef Smith. This Australian premiere production will be directed by founder and former Artistic Director of Force Majeure and Helpmann Award winner, Kate Champion.
Receiving rave reviews for its world premiere season at Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2015, Swallow explores questions of identity, heartbreak and hope with a vivid and poetic intensity.
With a stellar cast of just three, Swallow tells the stories of Rebecca (Megan Drury), Sam (Valerie Berry) and Anna (Luisa Hastings Edge) who are simultaneously at the tipping point between self-destruction and self-acceptance. Sharing similar states of vulnerability and defiance, they influence each other’s lives in unforeseeable ways while connecting their fates and ability to re-enter the outside world. A story about survival, Swallow is tragic yet comic, complex yet simple and ugly yet beautiful.
