BONDI DREAMING Now Showing Nov 9 - Dec 3 at Bondi Pavilion
Bondi Dreaming opened this week at the Bondi Pavilion to a full house of excited theatre goers. Bondi Dreaming has received fantastic reviews, with some claiming it an Australian Masterpiece. Tickets are available from the Tamarama Rock Surfers website here.
The play’s three characters are fictional but represent the Bali Nine and other Australians facing similar fates in foreign jails. At twenty-one years old with money troubles and the naivety of youth they choose a quick fix option of trying to traffic drugs out of Asia. They are caught and sentenced to death. The play takes place in their last days as they prepare for their fate. As a means of escape and also a way to come to terms with their guilt the men re-enact their past and what might have been their future.
Not just a great play, Bondi Dreaming is a ticket into suburban Australian culture. The play is all Aussie, from its footy boots to its love of roast chook.
Ticket prices: $33 Adults, $25 concession, $21 Tuesdays and $15 children (not suitable for children under 16)
Showing: Tuesday to Saturday, November 9 to December 3rd 2011
