Lara, a Sydney mum working interstate as a dancer, receives a distress call from her youngest son. Dad hasn’t been seen for days and they are running out of food. Lara has only the weekend to traverse the world of high-rise public housing, drug dealing, and addiction to track him down. And if she succeeds, what will she find?
The Weekend is a rollercoaster ride into one woman’s nightmare scenario, one from which she emerges a little wiser about the world and herself. Dancer-turned-playwright Henrietta Baird’s one-woman play blends laughter, hope, love, and loss into a young family’s search for a new beginning.
The Weekend was first developed at Yellamundie Festival 2017, had its world premiere with Moogahlin Performing Arts at Carriageworks as part of the 2019 Sydney Festival, and subsequently presented at BATS Theatre in Wellington for the Kia Mau Festival.
