BottledSnail Productions is proud to present the Australian premiere of the sharply drawn, dark and provocative production of Maple & Vine. Written by Jordan Harrison, Pulitzer Prize nominee and writer for the hit TV series Orange is the New Black.
Maple & Vine follows the fortunes of a harried young New York couple, Katha and Ryu, who choose to flee their unfulfilling lives and move to a gated community that meticulously recreates clipped lawns and crisp social mores of an earlier time, specifically the year 1955. Gone are the therapists, lattes and fancy salads. Hello repression, Salisbury steak and the satisfaction of manual labour. In this compulsively authentic world, Katha and Ryu are surprised by what their neighbours, and themselves, are willing to sacrifice for happiness.
