AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Somewhere along the way I’ll pick her a flower from the front garden of a house like I used to do when we first met.” The night creeps in and rain buckets down on the streets of Melbourne. Billy Joel blasts ironically from hotted-up hatchbacks full of youths. Four people have a night they will never forget as two strangers are thrown together through one shocking event. Sunshine is a funny, full-hearted and devastating piece of choral theatre.' (Source: Liveguide website)

— Review of Sunshine Tom Holloway 2016 single work drama
'"I must warn you it's the hardest play in the world to read. I got to page 15 and thought 'I have no idea what is going on'." It's not exactly what you'd expect the director of a new play by an acclaimed playwright to confess. But that's what Kirsten von Bibra, director of Tom Holloway's Sunshine tells me as we finish our chat. That said, she is full of praise for the work and says Holloway is "quite brilliant".'
