Open Captioned Performance.
Written by Colleen McCullough. Adapted for the stage by Tim McGarry
Directed by the award-winning Darren Yap (Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam, Diving for Pearls, Letters to Lindy), the gripping and controversial novel that catapulted Colleen McCullough to international fame has been sensitively adapted for the stage by acclaimed playwright Tim McGarry.
An unorthodox relationship develops between Mary, a career-driven business executive in her mid-50s, and Tim, a handsome 25-year-old labourer with a mild intellectual disability. Tim has grown up in a small but loving, working-class family who have tried to shelter him from the cruelness of the world. What begins as a chance meeting between them, soon develops into a life-changing relationship with shattering consequences.
Tim is a new Australian play filled with love, loss and acceptance, which explores the importance of embracing differences, opening oneself to the fullness of life and the opportunities it has to offer.
“…sometimes, all the miles between are as nothing, sometimes, they are narrowed to the little silence between the beats of a heart.” – Colleen McCullough, Tim
