The Big Picture


Joy and her two beaut friends, Fran and Mandy, are winning the hand-to-hand struggle to raise their fatherless children and live and love on the black economy. They come to grief when Joy's brother Guy rides into town on a mate's motorbike. The problems multiply, the violence escalates, the damage is done.

'The Big Picture' is a starkly moving, seriously funny play that turns upon a telling ambiguity and heads straight into the heart of the matter.
