ALONE OUTSIDE

By Liz Newell

“Unexpectedly heartbreaking... Liz Newell’s writing flows with a deep awareness of our combined experience as humans and our need to feel connected.”

Starring Sharon Davis under the direction of Lyall Brooks, Lab Kelpie return to Fringe with this powerful one-woman play by West Australian playwright Liz Newell that explores the conflict, awkwardness and nostalgia of returning home.

Having just broken up with her long-time boyfriend, Daphne reluctantly returns from The Big Smoke to the tiny country town she grew up in to visit her ailing grandmother.

Experiencing run-ins with a revolving door of people she hasn’t seen in years, Daphne eventually reconnects with former best-mate Aidan, sharing a long-held secret that finally brings her the sense of clarity she hadn’t realised she’d been missing.

A meditation on the concept of ‘home’ that examines the places and people that continually call us back – whether we like it or not – Alone Outside is a moving and ultimately uplifting look at the fraught paths we walk towards self-acceptance.
