Spencer - QUT Gardens Theatre - Tickets

Venue QUT Gardens Theatre
Dates 23 to 24 Aug 2019

There’s no such thing as fun for the whole family. From award-winning writer Katy Warner (A Prudent Man) comes a new Australian comedy-drama looking at a gloriously dysfunctional but tight-knit Australian family: single-mum and matriarch Marilyn and her three adult children – wayward daughter Jules, mouthy coulda-been Ben, and AFL player and golden boy Scott.

About to meet the young son – Spencer – he never knew he had, Scott and the family have returned home to help mark the occasion. With the surprise appearance of Ian, the father they barely remember, the entire family is forced to work together to clean up both the house and their own fractured relationships as the clock ticks down to Spencer’s arrival.

Employing classic Australian vernacular, lashings of humour and recognisable characters in situations that speak to the way we live today, Spencer asks us to consider how much family defines who we are, if we can exist without them, and whether we ever really grow up...
