Black Swan State Theatre Company presents “Water” by Jane Bodie (World Premiere).

There is always somewhere to go, when you are free. Water follows the journey of families born at different times in Australia’s history who are united in their determination to create safe passage for their loved ones.

It begins in Western Australia in the not-too-distant future, where we meet with a once powerful politician about to celebrate his birthday at the family’s island home – a retreat from the world that has clearly seen better days.

There is no water in the taps, there are no birds in the sky and to top it off, an unexpected guest arrives for dinner. With party politics high on the agenda and questions about who is to blame for crimes against humanity, celebrations are derailed and tensions run high.

Jane Bodie is an internationally renowned, award-winning playwright whose plays have been performed from London to New York. Her latest play, “Water” searches for clarity in a past that is full of contradictions. This epic new Australian drama marks Clare Watson’s first commission as Artistic Director.
