PAST THE SHALLOWS

BY FAVEL PARRETT
ADAPTED BY JULIAN LARNACH

KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE WATER

Harry and Miles live with their father, an abalone diver, on the wild and beautiful south coast of Tasmania. With their father largely absent, they look after each other as best they can. Over a school holiday while Miles works on the boat, Harry begins an unlikely friendship that will upset the delicate balance holding this unpredictable world together.

Adapted by playwright Julian Larnach from Favel Parrett’s award-winning debut novel, Past the Shallows is an ode to brotherhood and a heart-wrenching, lyrical exploration of mortality, family secrets and the capacity for both brutality and tenderness within contemporary masculinity.

Acclaimed director Ben Winspear directs a powerhouse cast of three young actors playing multiple roles in our final production of the year. Let yourself be swept away on the tide of this compelling and deeply poignant story that will stay with you long after the lights come up.
