Three strangers, intricately entwined by the events of one fateful night.

"An absolute masterpiece of local theatre." Western Advocate

In a small regional town, three people share their own funny, yet tragic, stories that cause their lives to converge.

Melissa, a mother at 18, escaping a home life with an emotionally abusive father. Her daughter is now 5, and Melissa is coming to realise that history is repeating itself.

Mick, an enthusiast for his work – tending the sewage facility and collecting the town’s garbage. Once a bright child, betrayal by a trusted adult forms his home-grown philosophy about life’s disposability.

Barbara, a former university lecturer in art, who has made a fresh start in the town with her investment speculator husband. Settling into country life, her academic understanding of death is confronted by the reality of life and death among rural animals.

Kangaroo is a truly inspired new work by a first-time playwright based in Bathurst NSW. It weaves and dances, revealing a dark and poetic world of solitude, strength, survival and death.
