Essie, Beth and Sid are on the cusp of adulthood at the arse-end of the world. Together in a small Queensland town they laugh, sunbathe, fight, dream and pray for some kind of future that they can’t quite picture.
The accidental death of a friend has torn apart all their assumptions about loyalty, love and life. And when a new kid comes to town with his own secrets and baggage, their fragile equilibrium faces a fresh test. Barely-healed wounds are reopened, new allegiances are formed and, finally, new futures become possible.
Opening 17 April, La Boite’s ‘Samson’ comes from the pen of one of Queensland’s brightest new playwrights Julia-Rose Lewis, who developed this new work as a La Boite Artist-in-Residence in 2013.
Samson will play at La Boite Theatre 17 April 2 May. Tickets are available now via www.laboite.com.au or call (07) 3007 8600.
