ABOUT

Winner: 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award

Finalist: 2013 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize

Nominee: 2013 Drama Desk Award, Outstanding Play

 

Mad March Hare in association with Red Line Productions at the Old Fitz present the Sydney premiere of Amy Herzog's multi award-winning play.

 

Young Americans Zack and Abby have the perfect ex-pat life in Paris: a funky bohemian apartment in up-and-coming Belleville; a stable marriage and Zack’s noble mission to fight pediatric AIDS. But when Abby finds Zack at home one afternoon when he’s supposed to be at work, the questions and answers that follow shake the foundation of their seemingly beautiful life.

REVIEWS

"Mad March Hare have done a wonderful job bringing Belleville to the Sydney stage at the Old Fitz Theatre. This is a deep, complex play directed by someone in full control of the material and her cast. Chilling and the dangerous…Don’t miss this one." Lisa Thatcher

"Full of intrigue and danger ..confidently designed by a team who taps into the undercurrents and subtexts of the writing, to address the less deliberate parts of our consciousness." Suzy Goes See

"Singing and compelling in its sadness." Jason Blake -Eight Nights a Week

 

" Remarkable and visceral performance." Kevin Jackson Theatre Diary

“Engrossing. ….complex…. relentlessly surprising." Hartford Arts Examiner
