About this Event

Scroll down to read just some of the reviews. The people and the critics love his new Australian Play .

"Cannot say how much I enjoyed it. Beautifully written. Brilliantly acted. I laughed, I cried and I pondered. A truly wonderful piece of work." ~Deb Mitchell

"Written Michael Gray Griffith“Is it only last week Australian of the Year Grace Tame told us, “History, lived experience, the whole truth, unsanitised and unedited, is our greatest learning resource. It is what informs social and structural change”? Marooned is a play that fulfils this urgent purpose, using communal story-telling, aka theatre, to confront Australia’s epidemic of life-threatening despair, shame and grief. It does so with humour and compassion and honesty. It needs to be seen."

~Harriet Cunningham The Sydney Morning Herald

READ WHOLE REVIEW

Initially rehearsed in a living room, from its opening night in a small theatre in Prahran, Marooned has been warmly accepted.It has toured parts of regional Victoria where it has attracted standing ovations and a loyal following.The MTC invited The Wolves Theatre to stage it in one of their theatres, then the Chief of Army invited them to stage it for the Chain of Command in Canberra.Now Covid willing, in September 2021 a National Conference in the UK will wrap up their conference with Marooned.It’s been called a revolution by a top army psychologist and has also attracted the backing of a former Australian of the year, Simon McKeon. Set in a waiting room in the afterlife, it focuses on the souls of four very different strangers who are bored and regretful and want to get out of this room and go home, but how? Maybe there is something they have to do. But what? Apart from the seats, the only thing in this room is each other.

“Marooned is undoubtedly the finest piece of theatre I’ve seen in many years. It had me in tears and belly laughing. Beautifully written and expertly performed. Stunningly good.”~Megan Watts.

“This is an important play,”~Alan Hopgood.

“While I can see the influences of Harold Pinter, this is not Pinter. This is an original voice”, ~Bruce Beresford

I laughed, I cried, I felt. It’s raw and extremely real. The actors are beyond amazing, the writing is phenomenal. It was an occasional shifting of bodies that brought you back to the reality that reminded you that this was a play.~Natalie Powel

I think it’s fair to say that any play that holds your attention for 90 minutes is something special. Having been in the audience, I can tell you this is that play. Miss it at your peril.~Simon Walters

Thoroughly enjoyed this yesterday. If you get the chance recommended very highly. Funny, touching and poignant. Great performances by all involved.~Brian Molony

It’s refreshing honest and raw – yet uplifting. I don’t think I’ve seen anything like this on the topic of suicide. Fantastic script and performances.~Marie Budimir

Brilliant is all I can say. It’s a story that needs to be told and everyone needs to see it.~Charlie Heylar

A fantastic play dealing with “Life issues”. Entertaining, funny, sad, and thoughtful. Not to be missed!~Damien Mecoles

What an absolutely brilliant show. Fantastc actors, superbly written. The cast, writer and everyone associated with Marooned thoroughly deserved their standing ovation and extended applause. A great theatre experience.~Jeffrey Byrant Jones

Cannot say how much I enjoyed it. Beautifully written. Brilliantly acted. I laughed, I cried and I pondered. A truly wonderful piece of work.~Deb Mitchell

This is a really important play~Elise Anderson

A superb play. The Script is absolutely amazing. ~Maria O’Sullivan

Marooned, a play about suicide, but I’m absolutely blown away about how it was dealt with in this amazing production. I laughed, (quite unexpectedly) I cried and looked at life in a completely different way afterwards. ~Mick O’Conner

It’s a must go see play (if I get a chance I will be back again to see it). A beautiful but yet brilliant truthful performance about a taboo subject. ~Melissa OHanlon-Karsai

Emotionally moving and extremely thought provoking.~Rhett May

Riveting the entire way through, with complex twists and turns that are entirely relatable to the audience. This is several stories on a trajectory no one can predict. This play has successfully tackled the enormity of a major societal issue inadequately addressed in many mediums. Bravo!~Sandee Allen

Cannot wait to see the show again as you tour around for the Defence. I appreciate all your amazing talent and engaging so many to discuss such an important topic.~Kylie Graham

After 40 odd years in theatre I think this work was one of the best crafted and performed pieces that genuinely touches your soul. I will never forget it!~Wayne Cahill

Wow, on almost every level it blew me away.  Firstly, the acting.  Absolutely first class from each member.  And the writing (esp. the premise) and interacting of each of the different characters, just fantastic.~Patricia Brown
