The Distance

10 Mar 2016

An award-winning cast stars this month in the Australian premiere of “The Distance” – a play about moral dilemmas and big laughs.

Directed by Leticia Caceres and starring highly-acclaimed actors Nadine Garner (The Weir), Susan Prior (Puberty Blues) and Katrina Milosevic (Wentworth), Melbourne Theatre Company’s (MTC) new series opens to audiences on March 10 at the Southbank Theatre, The Sumner.

Drawing similarities to Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, the new stage show puts friendships to the test as it explores society’s revered view of motherhood and the emotional fallout when a woman walks out on her family.

The play, written by celebrated British director-turned-playwright Deborah Bruce, was shortlisted in 2013 for the internationally acclaimed Susan Smith Blackburn Award.

Lauded as one of the most exciting talents in the country having already directed eight MTC productions, director Leticia Caceres said it was one of the best new plays to come out of Britain.

“With great humour and emotional intelligence, Deborah Bruce has written one of the best new plays to come out of Britain in the past 18 months,” she said.

“Whether you are a parent or not, it has universal themes of friendship, family and the anguish of adult responsibilities that everyone can relate to.”

The Distance runs until April 9. For more information and ticket bookings phone MTC Box Office on 8688 0800 or visit www.mtc.com.au
