Simon Burke stars in this home-grown drama by the playwright behind Holding the Man

Tommy Murphy's play about a young man searching for belonging and a sense of his own identity in Sydney's Kings Cross premiered in 2005, breaking box office records at Griffin Theatre. It's had several productions around Australia and in London since then and received stellar reviews basically everywhere it's travelled.

Australian theatre favourite – and beloved star of Play School – Simon Burke was involved in the initial workshops for the play back in 2004, but wasn't available for the first season. In this new production steps into the role of Peter, which he helped create, and is joined by Wil King and Helpmann Award winner Guy Simon.
