"A remarkable play - Tom is an authentic, original and exciting new playwright" Leo Butler, Royal Court Theatre, London.
An old man falls into his wife’s arms and cries. A young mother drops a pile of washing on the floor. A teenage girl as a child tells her mother the news. A boy walks home in silence. He feels the blood run down his cheek. The four strangers, bound by a shared moment - the Port Arthur Massacre. Ten years on and the aftershocks of the event still ripple.
Based on in-depth interviews, Beyond the Neck is set ten years after the event and deals with the grief and recovery of the 1996 tragedy.
