The Coming World

By Christopher Shinn

An Australian premiere production of a small human story that asks big questions.

The Coming World is an intimate piece of theatre – a funny, moving and thought provoking thrill ride about love, loss, guilt and forgiveness. Ed waits for his ex-girlfriend Dora. She doesn’t know it yet but Ed owes $10,000 to the wrong people and, despite everything, Dora finds herself dragged into his desperate plan to escape them and begin a new life.

 

With the character complexity of a Jonathan Franzen novel, the cinematic structure of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and the political microcosmic entanglement of Eugene O’Neill, this enchanting play resonates long after it ends.

Pulitzer award winning playwright, Christopher Shinn’s dialogue is electric. It catapults us from an analogue world into a digital age, following a desperate quest for love and connection.

Presented by Two Birds One Stone in partnership with Darlinghurst Theatre Company

The Telegraph (London)

'The Coming World is a small play, but, after it ends, you can still feel the ripples.'
