Living Together

An amateur production by Arrangement with Origin Theatrical on behalf of the Rights Holder.

Living Together is the second play in Alan Ackybourn’s comedy trilogy The Norman Conquests, each about the same traumatic family weekend in a country vicarage. Set in Southern England in the mid-1970s, Living Together covers the action in the living room.

Unmarried Annie lives in a Victorian house with her (unseen) bed-ridden widowed mother. So that Annie can go away for the weekend for some respite from her caring tasks, her brother and his wife have come to hold the fort. They believe Annie should pair off with the rather dim local veterinarian, but Annie has other ideas. She has made an assignation, but not with the vet.

When truth of Annie’s assignation is discovered, other family members get involved and the result is mayhem.

St Jude's Players - Silent Sky

Silent Sky

Set in the early 1900s under a vast sky of stars, the soaring, true story of Henrietta Leavitt emerges, punctuated by haunting music.

Now hailed as an astronomer who was well ahead of her time, Henrietta begins her working life at Harvard University under a renowned astronomer. Believing her work will involve access to a famous telescope, she arrives on the first day to learn her duties and status will be very different to that of the astronomers, all of whom are men.

Henrietta refuses to be dissuaded from her dream, but her obsessive work ethic to prove herself results in great strain on her relationships with her sister, her colleagues and a new-found love.

At last, Henrietta makes a profound scientific discovery, one that changes human understanding of the breadth of the universe.

St Jude's Players - A Hard God

A Hard God

By Arrangement with the Licensor, The Estate of Peter Kenna, c/-Curtis Brown(Aust) Pty Ltd

A Hard God is set in Sydney in 1946 and tells the story of the Cassidys, three working class Irish-Australian brothers and their families, struggling to reconcile their faith with the harsh realities of post-war life.

Middle brother Dan and his wife Aggie suffered most during the Great Depression, but now have become the rock on which the rest of the family depends. And as each brother struggles to navigate conflict and adversity, a younger Cassidy is confronted by the realisation of his deep attraction to his best mate and the crisis of faith this brings.

When unexpected tragedy strikes, the conflict and upheaval that ensues results in circumstances that make for gripping family drama, events as topical today as in the 1940s.
