The Distance
Melbourne Theatre Company presents
The Distance

5 Mar 2016 to 9 Apr 2016

Observant and funny, The Distance twists the themes of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House into a vividly modern tale of friendship and motherhood.

Turn to your friends in times of need. That’s sound advice, and just what Bea does after letting go of her marriage in Melbourne and returning to
the UK. All her friends rally behind her until she announces she wants her two small children to stay in Australia with their father. Silence. Aren’t your friends meant to be with you through thick and thin?

In this breezy comedy of big laughs and bigger emotions, Deborah Bruce takes aim at our revered view of motherhood. MTC Associate Director Leticia Cáceres directs a cast led by AACTA Award-winner Susan Prior (Puberty Blues, Rake) for this certified hit from London, in which warm feelings rapidly heat up, threatening a hilarious boil-over.
