I know it takes a long time to get to Australia. Although the play has won awards Down Under and features on the Australian school syllabus, it is practically unknown in the UK. The play tells the story of three grown-up, Australian sisters — Meg, Pippa and Hilary — who are reunited and forced to come to terms with their past after one of them tells all in a semi-autobiographical novel. The publication of the novel is the catalyst which brings the family back together again, unearthing issues of loyalty and cultural identity. The relationship with her son, Troy — a boyish Alex Farrow — is the emotional heart of the piece.
Spreadbury-Maher was born in Australia. He received his initial training as an opera singer at the Canberra School of Music. Under his leadership the theatre followed a strict artistic policy of staging only world premiers and revivals from world class playwrights and composers, a strategy which saw the theatre praised for its imaginative programming and quality productions. December saw Spreadbury-Maher form OperaUpClose with the aim of bringing opera to a wider audience by producing new, classic and difficult pieces which have so far been neglected or previously inaccessible.
