Suffering from a serious illness, Helen is forced to hire a carer while her devoted partner takes a short overseas trip. Fiercely independent, she concedes to the deal by hiring the least likely candidate; a young, unqualified, homeless tradie called Lennie, with a dangerous past. As their different worlds collide, an extraordinary bond is formed across the cultural taboos of age and class and a tragic pact takes shape.
After charming MTC audiences with What Rhymes with Cars and Girls, award-winning playwright Aidan Fennessy returns with the world premiere of this uplifting, hilarious and deeply moving new work directed by Peter Houghton (The Odd Couple), starring Linda Cropper (Offspring).
Commissioned by MTC with the support of the Joan & Peter Clemenger Trust.
