The minutiae of modern life is made up of moments, interactions and missed opportunities built on a foundation of muffin making, kombucha tasting, bread buying, kite flying and packets of assorted cream biscuits.
With 9 actors, 18 characters and 27 scenes Adrift is a fast-moving comic drama that excavates the domestic, the dreary, the anxious, the humorous and the heartbreaking as we search for meaning and connection in an increasingly dystopian world.
A new work by playwright Jane Miller, Adrift was first conceived in 2019 and developed through a series of workshops and playreadings. Originally known as POST it was part of La Mama Theatre’s War-Rak/Banksia Festival on 11 Dec 2021 as a playreading with Steve Gome, Annie Lumsden, Andrea McCannon and Kelly Nash. A subsequent playreading was held at Fortyfivedownstairs on 4 Sep 2022 with Keith Brockett, Bruce Langdon, Kelly Nash, Marissa O’Reilly, Sonya Suares and Glenn van Oosterom.
