A family is waiting for the return of their daughter from her holiday in Australia. However, instead of focusing on the impact of the event, it is the very act of waiting which dominates the text. The tone of the piece is set from the start when the opening four lines are spoken, then the piece is reset and the opening is repeated a further two times. The repetition of everyday routines highlights the monotony in their lives. They appear to lack purpose and direction. This is coupled with the fear of the future as the family reacts in extreme ways to the imminent arrival. As each increasingly absurd event happens, the play returns to the beginning, capturing the audience in the futility and frustration that the characters themselves are experiencing.
klpac’s Co-Associate Artistic Director Christopher Ling directs the brand new T4YP ensemble in a unique take on award-winning British playwright Caryl Churchill’s heartfelt drama about homecoming.
