THE SCRUNCH TEST
The play is a black comedy set in the present, Christmas Day. Based on the true story of Alaine’s family who emigrated from Scotland to Australia it is confrontational and insightful in how it deals with issues around alcoholism and the difficulty of a son coming out to his father. But essentially this is a Christmas play both poignant and heartfelt.
The play has a cast of four and has gone through a rigorous development process including a rehearsed reading at Hastie’s Cottage November 1st 2019.
Next planned performance at the Wyndham Cultural Centre, 22nd, and 23rd of December.
Please note: contains adult themes and occasional course language.
