Synopsis

A smash hit with Sydney audiences and critics, Neighbourhood Watch is a glorious Melbourne tale written especially for the inimitable Robyn Nevin.

Ana lives alone with her dog in Kew and it’s hard to say who is snappier. At eighty years of age, this widowed Hungarian émigré has no time for niceties. She does have time, though, for her young neighbour Catherine. Can their unlikely bond bear the weight of the past, the creeping inevitability of death, and a trip to the mall to see Mamma Mia?

Set in present-day Melbourne, Neighbourhood Watch reaches out to other times and other places with a warm heart and a charming sense of adventure. Director Simon Stone reunites the acclaimed Belvoir creative team and many of the cast, including co-stars Charlie Garber, Megan Holloway and Kris McQuade.

Standing Room

The Standing Room section in The Sumner is a space against the back wall of the auditorium with an angled, cushioned bench (much like those on a tram), for guests to lean upon. A limited number of spaces are available, and will be released for sale once all other tickets to a performance have been allocated.

Guests who purchase tickets for this section acknowledge that they will be required to stand for the duration of the performance, and are not permitted to occupy the seated section even if a seat becomes available.

To purchase a Standing Room ticket, simply select your preferred date from the booking area, and when prompted to select a seating area, choose the Standing Room area of the seat map.

For more information about Standing Room tickets, please contact our Box Office on 8688 0800.
