9 – 26 February 2017

Charles is a Millennial who wants to have kids, live in Spring Street speculation ‘The Dream’, and for his lover Dan to hold his hand in public. Jodie is Charles’ assistant. She’s new in town. She can’t control her own human instincts but wants to take her industrial design to the next level.

A rock and roll comedy featuring property development, new love, sex tapes, divorce and a ’67 Mustang, LIFETIME GUARANTEE is a brutal anthem exploring inexplicable love in a punishing world.

The production sees acclaimed Australian playwright Ross Mueller continue his search for truth and humour in places others might not look. His 2009 play CONCUSSION won the New York New Dramatists Playwright exchange and ran a season to critical acclaim at Sydney Theatre Company.

In LIFETIME GUARANTEE, he teams up with multi-award winning Theatre Works Creative Director John Sheedy for a biting comedy fuelled by urgency, honesty, anger, sex and alienation.

In a market of hot speculation, the council still hasn’t approved.

"Actors rise to the exhilarating challenge in thrilling tour de force."
THE AUSTRALIAN

"John Sheedy's production is a thrill ride, sharp and exhilarating. Ditto to the frisky set and lighting designs by Ellen Stanistreet and Martin Kinnane. Lifetime Guarantee is a timely reminder that a play in theatre can run rings - maybe even chuck doughnuts around the best television."
THE AUSTRALIAN

"A great start to Theatre Works' year of new work by some of Australia's most remarkable independent artists and companies."
THE AGE

"Mueller is surely one of the most intelligent, formally adventurous and emotionally brave playwrights now writing in this country."
ALLISON CROGGON

"The triumph of John Sheedy’s adaptation of THE RABBITS into an opera is that it retains both the simplicity of Marsden’s story and the character of Tan’s “parallel” world. A triumphant adaptation of a deeply tragic story."
THE GUARDIAN ON "THE RABBITS"
