Described as New York’s most moving play of the year, Sharr White’s The Other Place drops you into a gripping thriller that keeps you gasping at every turn.
Just as Dr Juliana Smithton’s research is leading to a potential scientific breakthrough, her life takes a disorientating twist. And from the moment she spots the girl in the yellow bikini a mystery begins to unfold that will engulf her brilliant mind. All she knows is that people are telling her lies, her husband is in on it, and that it all began long ago at The Other Place.
Theatre is rarely as powerful or emotionally satisfying as in this riveting drama. Multi-award-winning film director Nadia Tass (Best Director – AFI, Milan Film Festival) returns to the stage to direct a cast led by Catherine McClements, with original compositions by Paul Grabowsky.
