Once in Royal David’s City
By Michael Gow

“Extremely and acidly funny, touchingly compassionate.” Stage Noise

WA Premiere

Faced with loss, do we rage against the universe, search for connection or hope for an epiphany?

On the beach of New South Wales, Brecht-obsessed theatre director Will has planned to share a restful, halcyon Christmas with his recently widowed mother. But then, she unexpectedly falls seriously ill. During a bedside vigil, Will is forced to piece together the splintered shard of his own life. Angry and bewildered, he questions his role as an artist, a son and his place in a world where his dreams and ambitions appear forsaken.

This heartfelt work by Australian playwright Michael Gow is directed by Queensland Theatre’s new Artistic Director Sam Strong, marking our next exciting collaboration with this company. Intimate and sweeping, balancing warmth with wrath, Once in Royal David’s City is a life-affirming story about family, loss, purpose, politics and the endless possibilities of art.
