The Box

Presented by Mudlark Theatre, The Box is an explosive new Tasmanian play from the powerhouse union of award winning Palawa artist, Nathan Maynard, and Murri-born, nipalunaraised artist Rob Braslin.

Set in a fictional housing commission suburb of Bowendale, the story of The Box draws us into the home and family of a single mother Mandy and her two hardened “Bowey boy” sons.

This story is a relentlessly real, daringly comic and profoundly moving theatre experience, uncovering the painful truths and actions that define one family’s existence inside a government experiment.

A complex and compelling family drama, The Box rages at the fragility of our lives, lives balanced on a knife edge, revealing the courage it takes for many to persist and survive, let alone “dream outside the box”.

The Box is part of the Theatre North 2024 Season program.
