The Weekend: By Henrietta Baird
245 Wilson Street Bay 17, Eveleigh, NSW, 2015, Australia
18th January 2019 to 23rd January 2019
Lara, a Sydney mum working interstate as a dancer, receives a distress call from her youngest son. Dad hasn’t been seen for days and they are out of food. Lara has the weekend to track him down. And if she succeeds, what will she find? First showcased in development at the Yellamundie National First Peoples Playwriting Festival in 2017, and now presented in full production by Moogahlin Performing Arts and Carriageworks, dancer-turned-playwright Henrietta Baird’s debut one-woman play blends laughter, hope, love and loss into a young family’s search for a new beginning.
