As if their 20-year age gap wasn’t trouble enough, Matilda’s fighting for space with Gabe’s long-time bedfellows: misery, booze and writerly angst. She’s not even convinced he’s over his ex-girlfriend and publisher Angela, who was hooked on picking up his pieces. If Gabe wants to get sober, he’ll have to abandon his image as tragic writer betrothed to the bottle. And if Angela’s really trying to let Gabe go, like her partner Tony needs her to, she should probably say goodbye to Gabe’s wretched cat—which she’s somehow still looking after. Mary Rachel Brown (The Dapto Chaser) wields her razor-sharp wit to ask painfully familiar questions around romance and addiction: how do people find the strength to be loved? Why do some cling to people intent on pushing them away? And how do you shake off the past, when they won’t stop tailing you? Teaming up Brown’s deft understanding of human fallibility with director Mitchell Butel’s comedic expertise, Dead Cat Bounce finds humour in the everyday muck, with characters that hit rock bottom, and keep digging. Director Mitchell Butel Designer Genevieve Blanchett Lighting Designer Alexander Berlage Composer Nate Edmondson With Kate Cheel, Lucia Mastrantone, Johnny Nasser, Josh Quong Tart
