There are rules in this city Never bring them back to your place Never more than three shags Never tell them your real name Never mention the cricket Never (ever) cry. Ellen lives a shiny life in the heart of a shiny city.
She hates her office job, the alcohol isn't making her as drunk as it used to, and she seems to be allergic to the water. But there is always the company of strangers in this city - the stranger, the better. She thinks she's doing fine, except that lingering grief has taken hold and the anonymous guy she's going home with may not be so anonymous.
A hilarious, touching urban fable of connection and redemption, of moving and moving on, This Year's Ashes welcomes one of our most brutal, insightful and bitingly funny writers Jane Bodie to Griffin. And joining her for this deliciously dark and dirty theatrical bender is one of our hottest new directing talents, Shannon Murphy.
This Year's Ashes is a reluctant romantic comedy about Sydney, grief and cricket.
