Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta presents
DOUBLE BILL


THE SORRY MUM PROJECT
By Pippa Ellams

A witty observation on life, empathy, regret and reconciliation that takes us on a journey from the Fairfield RSL to the Moulin Rouge.

Pippa comes from a showbiz family. Her father was a cabaret star and her mother, Barbara, was a showgirl. But Pippa, like so many of us, loses sight of the person that is her Mum. This show goes to redress the balance, with an apology to her Mum and everyone’s Mum, who often becomes invisible once children arrive.

If you’re a Mum or daughter, or somebody’s child, this work will resonate.


LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU GET HOME
By Miranda Aguilar

Val, a Filipina teenager, is desperate to escape the purgatory period between high school and university so she can finally be seen as an adult. She makes a break from her religious, overbearing mother and childhood best friend, then sets out to the city in search of the queer community she lacks back home in Fairfield.

When she joins a Mardi Gras parade group and meets Prince, an enigmatic, older artist, Val is sure she has finally found her utopia – even if it means leaving her best friend, Thi, behind. But where do you turn when it turns out no place fits?

Let Me Know When You Get Home is a new, coming-of-age Australian play, deconstructing the myth of needing to “escape” Western Sydney. It draws from personal experience with suburban isolation and Filipino diasporic identity to create a work which explores the inner lives of isolated people and the discomfort that exists when no place fits.
