Meet Rose Maloney. Her dad Danny went to Vietnam. Her grandfather Brian is ex-IRA. Today is their collective birthday. From this intimate reunion, The Seed opens itself up over and over again until a silent family battle becomes a national story about finding new life amongst the rubble of old wars. This play has a very special kind of honesty and humour to it which sorts the great lies we buy into from the reality we live through.
A compelling, tightly-woven and thrilling exploration of a very real family and the repercussions of war.
"[A] terrific play of family, war, lies and inter-generational cause and effect..." - Stephen Dunne, Sydney Morning Herald
