REFINED

By Katy Warner

“Warner's script is whip-smart... a brilliant piece.”
The Australia Times(for A Prudent Man)

A booming regional factory town, a beach you can’t swim at, and the third worst school in the state.

Five angry voices – each ringing with the rebellious grunge of the mid 90s – scream hopelessly against a vast, unseen power.

The third collaboration between Lab Kelpie and AWGIE winning playwright Katy Warner (A Prudent Man, Spencer), Refined is a raw, funny and in-your-face look into adolescence, broken dreams – and what happens to people when the economic lifeline of a town begins to fade.

Shortlisted for the 2018 Max Afford Award, this vital new Australian work will undergo a week-long creative development at fortyfivedownstairs Melbourne, culminating in two nights of free staged readings, performed by a dynamite ensemble of some of Australia’s best young actors. With each evening’s performance followed by a Q&A and feedback session, book in now to watch and be involved in this brand new work in development.

7:30PM | Friday 22 and Saturday 23 November 2019 | fortyfivedownstairs, 45 Flinders Lane Melbourne.

Refined is proudly supported by the City of Melbourne Arts Grants Program.
