The Lonely hasn't been seen for a long time. His house stands quiet, on the furthest edge of town. So everyone brings to his doorstep the things they love – a photo of the wind, a song you sing in cars, a feeling of ferris wheels, some lightning in a jar. The Lonely is ignoring them all. But one girl stands at his door and won't go away. ‘The Tasmanian writer has a quirky, audacious, wonderfully unfettered way of looking at life that is fully in tune with children's thinking. His verbal imagery is delectable… A tale with charm, humour and real feeling' (The Stage, England).
Commissioned by Tutti Frutti Productions (UK) and premiered (with national tour) in 2009. Directed by Wendy Harris
