Calling last drinks…
In a dystopian future Australia, Helen and her civil war veteran father sell moonshine to a broken town, struggling to survive in a poisoned landscape which is frighteningly familiar. Helen envisions a better way, but no-one is listening.
The fragile world they’ve constructed is thrown into crisis when a government inspector arrives on the same day as a black market salesman, forcing Helen to confront the darker side of their family history.
The Way Out is an exquisite new play by Josephine Collins, developed through the Red Stitch INK program.
