AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Daniel wakes up. Something is missing. The phone is not working, and the kids' toys are not in their usual spot under the television. In fact, his wife and children seem to have disappeared.

Old Man is Matt Whittet's extraordinary play about fathers and sons, love and loss, kindness and Newtown. It is a beautiful and shockingly simple tale in two parts, which asks if it is possible to wake up one day and make good-enough better.' (Source: Belvoir St Theatre website.)
