AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE / EXCLUSIVE TO CHIPPEN ST. THEATRE
“A Kafkaesque Odyssey” Variety
After the unexpected death of a father he hardly knew, Wilfrid is coerced to bury the body in his father’s homeland.
He is helped in his quest by a movie director and one of King Arthur’s knights, both farcical versions of Wilfrid’s own psyche.
Along the way, he acquires friends all of whom dream of a better life and when confronted by a war-torn country, Wilfrid finds an additional corpse is one too many. Only if he makes it to the Tideline, will he be able to bury his father.
Following the critically acclaimed Scorched, the epic Tideline is the second play of award-winning Lebanese-Canadian playwright Wajdi Mouawad to hit the Australian stage.
“A magical night. A triumph!” Le Figaro, France.
“Not to be missed” L’Orient-Le Jour, Lebanon
WARNING: Tideline contains sexual references, coarse language and explicit violent war descriptions. 16y+ only.
