Love Me Tender

Love Me Tender

Director Matthew Lutton (Antigone, The Duel) premieres one of Australia’s most audacious new plays. In a dreamed-up version of the Australian backyard, five actors tease out the story of a father and daughter. By the end of the story, their dream of modern life has been engulfed in fire, and a tale of pure love has become a searing tragedy of leadership and sacrifice.
Inspired by Euripides’ Iphigenia in Aulis and written by one of the country’s most original young writers, Love Me Tender is a thrilling vision of contemporary Australia drawn from our experiences of the Black Saturday bushfires, raunch culture and domestic dreaming.
