SNIPPETS FROM REVIEWS:
"Cornelius's writing is superb....intensely poetic, disturbing yet humorous....Mealor's cast are a magnificent ensemble of actors...this inner journey is given deft emotive illumination through Ben Flett's gently pulsing, flowing set of arpeggios for guitar played live...David O'Brien - Db Magazine
"....these young actors are fabulous, giving their absolute all to their characters...there is also an almost-graphic sex scene, which is extremely well handled by a silk-clad Renee Gentle and Tim Overton....Hopefully, this excellent company will prosper and present us a wide range of material in the future....." Steve Horne - Indaily.
"Nic English gives a consistent and energetic performance as multiple characters.... Indeed, some of the best moments in the play are when English, Overton and Guy O'Grady as Aldo share scenes as best mates.........." Emma Size - Adelaide Theatre Guide
The Call is an enthralling drama about a young man looking to escape a suburban life.
"I thought that when I grew up everything would be a lot clearer, that it would make sense…"
Gary stares into the eyes of a chook. After laying twenty thousand eggs and spending an entire life inside a tiny cage, she’s facing the chop. Gary has had a confined life too—most of it spent looking for girls, stealing cars and wagging school. Now it’s become a succession of dull, dirty and dangerous jobs. But Gary yearns for something that can make sense of life for him—give it meaning. He hears the call. One that roars inside him. A call of the wild, a call to arms, a call to prayer, a call of adventure...
