Transparency (20 - 24 Sept) from Riverside Theatres

In the countdown to Christmas the disappearance of a young boy rocks a small town community instigating a chain of events that will alter the lives of everyone involved. For Simon, the world he has built here was a second chance; though still ridden with guilt, in the eyes of the law he has paid for his mistake. Given a new identity, new history and a single confidante, he has successfully buried the truth of his past; even from Jessica, the woman he loves. Will events force Simon to step outside the prison his new identity has become and does the community have the right to know his true identity? Powerfully written, thought-provoking and deeply moving, Transparency was the recipient of the Kit Denton award for brave and courageous writing in 2009. Following an acclaimed production at the Belfast Festival with the prestigious Ransom Theatre Company, Transparency toured the UK and London where its subject matter provoked much debate. This production is the Australian premiere.

‘With my background as a children’s rights lawyer the questions are ones I have dealt with for years, and being able to portray these issues in an artistic context challenges an audience and provokes strong discussion about themes of the play, as well as about truth and honesty in relationships generally’. Suzie Miller
