In the small regional NSW town of Dorewick, Toni and Jane have set up a support group for mothers who’ve lost children to suicide. They meet weekly above the local pub, to chat and share a rotating selection of chocolate.
But numbers are falling, and Toni has resorted to subterfuge to boost membership: she’s started promoting the group as a social meet-up for childless women over thirty. When prospective new member Eliza arrives, hoping for fun outings, she soon finds herself trapped in a lie.
This warm, moving, gently funny new Australian play balances darkness and truth to present a profoundly honest portrayal of community and healing.
