A heart-racing rollercoaster ride into one woman’s nightmare.

Lara, a Sydney mum working interstate as a dancer, receives a distressed call from her youngest son. Dad hasn’t been seen for days and they are running out of food. Lara only has the weekend to traverse the world of high-rise public housing, drug dealing and addiction to track him down. And if she succeeds, what will she find?

Based on the real-life experiences of the dancer-turned- playwright, Henrietta Baird, The Weekend was one of the most talked about premieres of Sydney Festival 2019.

Produced by Moogahlin Performing Arts, Darlinghurst Theatre Company is thrilled to welcome this powerful one-woman Australian work to our stage.

“Baird’s writing is full of thrills, brimming with keenly observed humour, and a modern attitude that boldly pushes Australian playwrighting into exciting new realms.” – Suzy Goes See

“Baird’s writing is full of thrills, brimming with keenly observed humour, and a modern attitude that boldly pushes Australian playwrighting into exciting new realms.” – Suzy Goes See

"Baird has a good ear for vernacular speech and her characters speak with both poetry and fury: telling jokes, swearing liberally... Most of all, Baird writes with compassion." - Caroline Wake, The Conversation

 

"Lara's journey, more familiar than it should be, is told comically but finally with great power." - John McCallum, The Australian

“Written with breathtaking reality and white knuckle tension” - Kevin Jackson, KJ Theatre Diary
