American Song - QUT Gardens Theatre - Tickets

American Song
Venue QUT Gardens Theatre
Dates 20 to 21 Mar 2020

If only you could find the moment that started everything.

Andy’s experience is common to many of us; the slow accumulation of a good life: love, work, friendship, family. As he heads off to work to give the biggest presentation of his career, he wishes his teenage son Robbie goodbye. Eight hours later, everything has changed.

American Song tackles the confronting and heartbreaking issue of gun violence, reaching beyond national or cultural borders in an intimate exploration of love, forgiveness and parental responsibility. With Murray-Smith’s characteristically deft wit and compassion she makes a difficult topic thoroughly gripping, wryly humorous and deeply moving.
