Sydney Theatre Company presents
MOSQUITOES
By Lucy Kirkwood

Australian premiere

Is love the strongest force in the universe?

Alice is a scientist working towards an important new discovery. Jenny is her sister, and believes any conspiracy she reads on the internet. They couldn’t be more different. So, when tragedy forces them together, the impact has unexpected consequences.

Playwright Lucy Kirkwood “tackles giant themes with a swaggering showmanship” (The Telegraph, UK). Here, she continues her extraordinary run of hit shows, following on from Chimerica (2017) and The Children (2018). Mosquitoes is perhaps her best yet – a perfectly focused family drama woven together with big questions about the universe and our very existence.

It’s 2008 and Alice’s team of physicists at the Large Hadron Collider are searching for the Higgs Boson, stitching together the fabric of the cosmos. But at home, Alice’s family is falling apart at the seams. It’s a story of facts and feelings, of resilience and decay, of particle physics and sibling rivalry, that reaches to the edges of time and space without ever losing touch with its very human heart.
