AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From the pen of Will Eno, who was described by the New York Times as ‘a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation’, comes a 70-minute monologue of disarming wisdom.'

'He’s called The Traveller. He tells us from the outset he is ‘not from here’; his eccentric world is our world too – but seen through the eyes of someone who looks in from the outside.''

'Is he a migrant? Refugee? A prophet from the wilderness to remind us who we are? Or is he from somewhere even further away?'

'We’re very pleased to have Jimi Bani (Peter Pan, The Sapphires) back on our stage, under the direction of Jada Alberts (writer of Brothers Wreck). Between them they’ll bring a distinctly Australian perspective to this international hit.' (Source: Belvoir Website)
