A Stretch of the Imagination

Venue Lennox Theatre
Dates 19 May - 23 May 2009

John Wood returns to the Riverside stage following his triumph in 2008’s The Clubto play Monk O’Neill, the bush philosopher and yarn-spinner, epic lover and mate, heroic battler and individualist, sardonic iconoclast, sportsman, cultured man-of-letters and bon-vivant.

A surreal, black comedy, A Stretch of the Imagination introduces us to one of the great comic creations of Australian dramatic literature. Monk’s colourful, rambling monologue cuts to the quick of what Australia once was and what one day it could become.

No sooner had Stretch premiered than it was deemed an Australian classic, for good reason.”
Sydney Morning Herald

It was bold and absurd, it spoke about and to Australians, it boisterously let rip with the vernacular.”
