Jurassica

Concert or Performance

29 Aug 2018 to 1 Sep 2018

Jurassica is a story of family, migration, language and growing old. It is a heart-warming tale, told with humour and pathos and spoken in both English and Italian. It is also about dinosaurs – but not necessarily those from pre-historic times.

Ralph and Sara migrated from Tuscany in the 1950s to their concrete-front-yard house in suburban Moorabbin. Their son, Ichlis, never really forgave them for his misunderstood name, and grandson Luca is struggling to talk to his father or grandfather. Until one night Ralph is rushed to hospital and, through an unlikely connection with Kaja, an interpreter who herself fled war torn Belgrade, Luca learns to reconnect.

Developed during his time as Resident Writer at Red Stitch, with Dramaturge Gary Abrahams, Dan Giovannoni’s magical new play, Jurassica, weaves the past and present together, exploring what it is to migrate, to be displaced and to spend the rest of your life searching for home. Most of all, this is a play about the importance of family and about mending fences before you grow too old.
