By David Megarrity Directed by Bridget Boyle Queensland Theatre Premiere | Winner QPDA 2018-19
A touching portrait of memory and connection
The Holidays are on holiday: 12-year-old Oliver has been pulled out of school for an unexpected road trip with his mum and dad, en route to grandad’s seaside shack. But grandad, an eccentric artist, is not there. In this unkempt place stuffed with memories, it seems that the Holidays – instead of getting away from it all – have taken a lot with them.
This Queensland Premier’s Drama Award-winning play is a feast for the senses, a wistful and funny journey combining live performance, music and cutting-edge projection. A disarming and lyrical chronicle about family, for families, The Holidays is a show for sons, fathers, grandfathers, and anyone who loves one.
Bridget Boyle last directed the heartwarming and award-winning production, The Longest Minute. Brisbane theatremaker, writer, composer, musician and academic David Megarrity won the Queensland Premier’s Drama Award 2018-19 for The Holidays from a field of more than 90 entrants.
