The Big Dry
Brothers George and Beeper wait anxiously day after day for their father to come home. If they are discovered on their own it would mean the end of everything. Then a girl breaks in. Two’s company but three is a problem.
The Big Dry, by Tony Davis, is an unsettling and evocative depiction of dystopian fiction at its very best. It tells the story of three young people battling a world gone horribly wrong. Beautifully and economically told, it is one of those stories that touch your heart, stays with you long after you’ve finished the final page and says much about the human condition.
The Big Dry sees ATYP teaming up with Sydney’s iconic Ensemble Theatre in a creative collaboration driven by Artistic Directors Mark Kilmurry and Fraser Corfield. A cast of exceptional young professional actors aged between 12 and 16 drive this frightening tale of children abandoned in a hostile world.
