Theatre Wednesday 23rd Oct 2019
Until Thursday 31st Oct 2019
In a Word
By Lauren Yee, Directed by Dadiow Lin

Today is the two-year anniversary of Fiona’s son’s disappearance, and still, nothing makes sense to her. Not her blasé husband, the incompetent detective, nor the neighbourhood kidnapper who keeps introducing himself in the checkout line. As Fiona delves back into her memories of that fateful day, to uncover that crucial missing piece, grief and comedy collide, and ordinary turns of phrase take on dangerous new meanings.

Dadiow Lin, Genesis Future Directors Award recipient, directs Lauren Yee’s critically acclaimed in a word. Yee was the winner of the 2016 Francesca Primus Prize for in a word, a prize awarded annually to an emerging female playwright.
