After three years in development, a remarkable ensemble of six extraordinary actors breathe life into 'Unprecedented', a landmark new Australian play by multi-award-winning playwright, Campion Decent.
“I don’t hold a hose, mate.”
Based on coronial inquiry reports, testimonials and submissions to the royal commission, including those infamous words of the former Prime Minister, Unprecedented stands as a rallying cry, an urgent theatrical work and powerful tribute to people fighting for their communities.
With heart and unexpected humour, the play speaks to the resilience of community, the long road to recovery, and the courage it will take to make change.
This major theatrical event is the companion work to Campion’s celebrated play Embers, which premiered at HotHouse Theatre in 2006.
See it locally first before it tours to fire affected communities around Victoria and NSW.
Unflinching. Unmissable. Unprecedented.
