Sydney based playwright Daniela Giorgi has always loved country themed magazines and has had a persistent dream of leaving the city and moving to the country. Her newest play Seed Bomb is set to open in Newtown’s Old 505 Theatre early next week, promising to take audiences on a wild and thrilling journey. The piece follows the life of Kat, a young woman with high ambitions to leave the big city, and how her life is turned upside down when she meets a group of urban warriors.
Seed Bomb writer Daniela spoke about her fantasy of leaving the city of Sydney behind, “I don’t think I could ever live out of the city, but, I’ve always had a fantasy of living out on a country property.” After realising that she would never move away herself, Daniela thought, “I’m not going to live out of the city, so I’ll get a character to do it.”
Seed Bomb, however, is not simply a story of a young woman choosing to stay in the city she loves. Daniela explains how much deeper the writing goes, saying, “It came from that sense of how do you become happy with where you are, yet still have that sense of joy and fantasy about life, despite living in the big city.” Daniela then added, “I was trying to bring the wildness into the city. I was trying to bring these crazy people who aren’t afraid of anything, meeting real normality and then exploring what happens there.”
Seed Bomb is an emotional, thrilling and wild comedy that is sure to inspire every single audience member.
