'Stewed' by Angela Murphy
From the writer who gave us What are the Odds?.... RATED: PG
'Stewed' is an office comedy with heart, about a woman who is forced to learn that people who initially seem very different, can often turn out to be very much the same.
The offices of Shelbourne Harbour Institute of Tertiary Education (SITE) are infused with the business of bureaucracy and pots of Ginger Kiss tea. Thirty-eight year old Moondance, a product of Nimbin parents Rainbow and Glass, has well and truly moved on from that world, to become a dedicated worker at SITE. For the last six months she has held the position of part-time, Acting Manager of The Operations and Equity Department (TOED).
When Branka Radich, the 28 year old, newly-appointed, permanent Manager arrives spruiking orders to ‘shave the fat’, the hem of Moondance’s full-length skirts start to unravel. Office life for Moondance is about to change forever.
This bureaucratic bouillabaisse will make you laugh while questioning the ethics and behaviours of co-workers, and the fallout of their decisions.
JOIN US FOR THE Q&A - After performance on Wednesday 11 March
JUTE invites you to a post show conversation with the creative team. It's a great opportunity to discuss your response to the show, for you to ask questions about the process of creating the work and allow you to delve into the creative process!
Like a TED talk, it's only 20 minutes and you can come away knowing more about how theatre is created (the tricks of the trade), the problem solving that the creative team went through to come up with solutions, and an understanding of how these creative beings work. And of course it's a great opportunity to meet the cast after the performance.
We look forward to these conversations with you
