thought provoking scriptTriumph confirms why van de Geer was named by Melbourne Writers Festival as one of ‘30 under 30’ best Melbourne Writers  – Theatre Press

In the aftermath of a terrorist attack, a young woman becomes a hero. From beneath the smoke and rubble of anonymity she emerges with a story of struggle so inspiring that the world can’t help but listen. If only it were true. Survivors become saints; drop-outs become poster-boys; mothers parade their sick children in search of a spotlight. Inspired by real stories of fake victims, Triumph is an absurd and deeply unsettling take on the politics of struggle in the post-9/11 world.

This bold new play brings a distinctive lens and cruel humour to bear on a world that makes celebrities out of victims, only to watch them fall apart.

This project has been supported by the City of Melbourne, Creative Victoria, The Besen Family Foundation, The Malcolm Robertson Foundation and fortyfivedownstairs.

Written by Louris van de Geer; Director Mark Pritchard; Cast includes Aljin Abela, Syd Brisbane, Anouk Gleeson-MeadEmma Halland Leone White.
