Fearless investigates the many portals of loneliness.
Ten characters inhabit the world of Fearless, distilled by the Milk Crate Theatre Ensemble, composer Daryl Wallis, chanteuse Christa Hughes and playwright Mirra Todd.
Each character flinches at a point in their lives. In that moment each life is unexpectedly hurled off its normal path into an emotional abyss. Fearless begins at this juncture where redemption, recovery, release or relapse is but an inch from each person’s grasp.
"Fearless is at its heart a story of our intrinsic humanity, of our deepest and most primal selves; sometimes lost, sometimes yearning, but always striving to understand our place in a fractured world" (Mirra Todd, 2012)
"Isolation, poverty, addiction, social invisibility. Some dark territory is covered here but Fearless is by no means gloomy. Ultimately, it delivers a message that is hopeful without being glib: the cure for loneliness - or at least a reprieve from its most debilitating effects - comes not from looking inward, but from reaching out."
