Return To The Dirt

Bille Brown Theatre

Queensland Theatre presents the 2020–21 Queensland Premier’s Drama Award-winning play Return to the Dirt, playing at the Bille Brown Theatre, South Brisbane from October 16 to November 6, 2021. 

The award-winning play by, and starring, Steve Pirie, is a refreshing, honest and surprisingly uplifting invitation to start the conversations we all try to avoid.

Steve never imagined he’d end up working in the funeral industry. But when he finds himself living back home in Toowoomba to save up for his wedding, it’s the only job he can get. The year he spends working among the dead opens his eyes to what awaits us at the end and what it means to live.

With respect, wit and a nod to pop culture, Steve takes us on a journey that celebrates finding your place in the world, the power of personal redemption, and humility in the face of the big questions.

‘What strikes me most about this play is its honesty, its deep humanity and its humour.’ - Queensland Premier's Drama Award Judge. 

Don’t miss the world premiere season of Return to the Dirt at the Bille Brown Theatre from October 16 to November 6, 2021.
