A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in. And how many want out.” Tony Blair

Something unsettling has crept into the neighbourhood. It’s a feeling, a suspicion that disappears when you look at it directly. Patrice Balbina has noticed that small things are starting to disappear.

The butcher lost his laugh, the man on the radio is losing his patience and Dad says the government has lost its mind. Even the love of her life seems to be a little further away each day. But you wouldn’t think it was the end of the world.

Then it was.

Premiering in Australia, this new work is the final chapter of the three year international partnership, ‘Documents of Poverty and Hope’, a unique collaboration between artists from six leading international theatre companies: Australian Theatre for Young People (Australia), Pilot Theatre (UK), Teatro O Bando (Portugal), Elsinor Teatro Stabile d’Innovazione (Italy), Dynamo Theatre (Canada–Montreal) and Presentation House Theatre.

International Collaboration

DRAMA | 50 minutes


Ages: 8-65
