Six Hours is one-act play about two best friends, one of whom just happens to be dead. It's a depressing premise, but the play is anything but! It's a slightly off-kilter look at life, love and jaguar taming, as the late Hannah comes back to visit her long time friend Drew – making life (and death!) harder as she does. Drew is the only one who can see her, and is the only one aware that she's still lurking, as the rest of her friends try to move on with life.
Six visits, each one hour long. But why Drew? Six conversations gradually explain their story, their history, and above all, their friendship. A comedy/drama about life, love and loss.
Six Hours was shortlisted for the Playmarket 'Playwrights B4 25' award in 2011, when it was still an unfinished draft. Through workshopping and edits with the cast, it has been polished to its current state.
September 27, 28 & 29th, at 8pm.
Tickets cost $10 ($8 students/unwaged).
Starring: Brendan West, Clare McDonald, Bronwyn Williams, Mike Taylor, and Jono Carter
