Black Swan State Theatre Company presents
by Tim Winton
31 August – 15 September 2013
Shrine is set above the rocky headlands of the South Coast of Western Australia, between a forest and the sea. It’s wine country, and a privileged young man, Jack, has been killed driving friends back to Perth from his parents’ beach house.
Jack leaves in his wake a wreck of a father, a shadow of a mother, and the promise of a love affair that never quite happened.
A year later, Jack’s father Adam meets the small town girl, June, who shared a strange and life changing night with Jack hours before he died. Domestic heartbreak transcends into mythology in a landscape inhabited by ghosts. After Rising Water and Signs of Life, Shrine is the third play by Tim Winton about the iconic Western Australian landscape and its inhabitants. Shrine is also the second Tim Winton play featuring Silver Logie Award winner John Howard.
