About the Production:

Brink Productions in association with Adelaide Festival Centre presents
The Aspirations of Daise Morrow

Adapted by Brink Productions from Patrick White’s short story Down At the Dump, featuring Zephyr Quartet

Brink Productions presents the world premiere season of The Aspirations of Daise Morrow – a new work based on a short story by Australian writer and Nobel Prize winner Patrick White, featuring a cast led by Paul Blackwell and Kris McQuade – two of the country’s greatest theatre actors – and with a live score composed and performed by Zephyr Quartet.

Set in the fictional suburb of Barranugli, the Whalley family are getting ready for a day at the dump while next door the Hogben’s prepare for the funeral of the scandalous Daise Morrow. The Aspirations of Daise Morrow is a word for word adaptation retaining all of the writer’s language, wit, scathing insight and wonderful humour.

The Aspirations of Daise Morrow is brutally funny, profound in its understanding and empathy for human nature, and filled with magic and wonder.
