A RED DOOR PUBLICATION
A Single Act follows the relationships between two couples, Scott and Michelle and Neil and Clea, after a devastating terrorist attack in the city where they live.
At the beginning of the play, Neil and Clea return home separately, overjoyed to find each other alive. The narrative then jumps a year on and we see the final stages of Scott and Michelle's relationship which had begun on the day of the attack.
A Single Act deftly and painfully dissects the two relationships, one running forward in time to its end the other backwards to its beginning, and examines how a single political event can change people's trajectories irrevocably.
"A courageous play, a daring play..." - Herald Sun
"Jane Bodie's play combines a stylised structure with naturalistic, domestic detail to great effect... Bodie's dialogue is intelligent, often witty and cleverly observed." - The Age
