A star-studded new production of Michael Gow’s timeless Australian classic Away is coming to La Boite Theatre from October 25 to November 13, 2021.

Premiering at La Boite’s Roundhouse Theatre, the sparkling new in-the-round production is directed by multi award-winner Daniel Evans (The Tragedy of King Richard III, Cinderella) and stars newcomer Reagan Mannix as Tom in his professional debut alongside nine of La Boite’s Artist Company members: Emily Burton, Will Carseldine, Giema Contini, Sean Dow, Billy Fogarty, Roxanne McDonald, Christen O’Leary, Ngoc Phan, Bryan Probets and Kevin Spink.

Set in 1967 against the backdrop of an Australia recovering from the Vietnam War, three families pack their cars for Christmas at the beach, where a freak storm forces their respective vacations to fall apart and intersect.

One of our country’s most loved and iconic plays, it prompts us to consider what is ultimately most important in our lives (which couldn’t be more timely); as Away takes audiences on a nostalgic journey from a suburban school hall to the Gold Coast’s iconic glitter strip, with plenty of secrets, seduction and good summer vibes along the way.

The play - that every Australian can relate to - is filled with everything you need for a brilliant night at the theatre: deeply-felt characters, Shakespearean magic, bittersweet Summer romance, and a rollicking 60s soundtrack.

It's a witty and wonderful escape to welcome in the summer.
