On scarred earth, amongst blackened trees, a community gathers to try to understand what has happened. They grapple with their memories, and try to make sense of it all. In the midst of the chaos, a father searches for his daughter. How do we carry on when our world falls apart?
A powerful vision of the beauty and brutality of contemporary Australian life, Tom Holloway’s extraordinary play LOVE ME TENDER explores our response to catastrophic bushfires, the challenges of being a parent, society’s sexualisation of pre-teen girls, and the significance of love when faced with tragedy.
Directed by Patrick McCarthy, multi-award winning independent company Mutation Theatre present the Victorian premiere of this important work by one of Australia’s most talented playwrights.
