AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'"Shrine" is set above the rocky headlands of the South Coast of Western Australia, between a forest and the sea. It's wine country, and a privileged young man, Jack, has been killed driving friends back to Perth from his parents' beach house. Jack leaves in his wake a wreck of a father, a shadow of a mother, and the promise of a love affair that never quite happened. A year later, Jack's father Adam meets the small town girl, June, who shared a strange and life changing night with Jack hours before he died. Domestic heartbreak transcends into mythology in a landscape inhabited by ghosts.' Source: http://aussietheatre.com.au/ (Sighted 26/09/2012)
