FAMILY MATTERS MEETS REDFERN NOW MEETS THE EXORCIST

A GRIPPING, DARKLY FUNNY DRAMA ABOUT A SPIRITUAL FORCE AND A FAMILIES NEED TO CONNECT WITH IT.

It’s the anniversary of Vinnie’s death. His brother, 17-year old Preston is being visited by spirits— seemingly tormenting him while he sleeps. His sister, Akira buries her pain in her phone. Their father, Eric, is in denial and their mother, Abigail, is numbing her pain with drink, while Nan is coping with it all by talking… a lot.

There’s no denying that Preston’s on the cusp of something otherworldly. The family’s disconnect from each other and the world has gone on long enough. It’s time to purge the past to embrace the present, if they’re to have a future, and an encounter with spirits might just be the catalyst they all need.

Steven Oliver’s (Black Comedy, Black Queen Black King) deeply moving new play deep-dives into contemporary family politics and the connection between culture, grief and our humanity, with Oliver’s signature aplomb.

In his debut at La Boite, Isaac Drandic directs this incredible new Australian work with a stellar Indigenous cast.

From Darkness is supported through the Australian Government’s Indigenous Languages and Arts program and presented in association with Playwriting Australia. Development supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body and the Creative Sparks Fund, a partnership between the Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council to support local arts and culture in Brisbane.
