Larrikin Ensemble Theatre presents the premiere production of an Australian award-winning script by Felix Nobis. Written in a scintillating and witty prose poem, it tells of the return of the prodigal son who declares war on his brother, over actions taken during his seven-year absence.
Jealousy, betrayals and insecurities festering below the surface come to a head, along with nostalgia for times gone by and the adventures of two boisterous brothers.
This raw, punchy drama picks at the complexities of the sibling relationship, and the challenge of holding a family together in a time when big money threatens moral principle.
An accomplished cast is headed by Jane Clifton as the mother, and Matt Dyktynski and Martin Blum as the brothers.
Warning: coarse language
