A fish drops from the sky and a lonely middle-aged man is launched on a magical and emotional journey across four generations of family wrestling with the awful legacy of a secret buried deep in the past.
In this award-winning drama from Australian playwright Andrew Bovell, each of the characters is trapped in a longing they cannot bear. They reach toward each other, tentatively, uncertainly, but time after time fail to connect.
The tragic love story of a young Englishman, Gabriel, whose father has disappeared, and a young Australian girl from the Coorong, Gabrielle, is at the center of this haunting drama that reaches back to London in 1960 and reaches forward to Alice Springs in 2039—from a time when the world began to change, to a future in which environmental catastrophe is the harvest of that change.
A New Home for City Garage at Bergamot Station
We’re happy to tell you that we now have a home of our own at Bergamot Station Arts Center. We’re converting the building now and will open our first season in September. We look forward to seeing all of you there, our loyal patrons, and hope you will love it as much as we do. It’s going to be a beautiful space, designed for the kind of edgy, thought-provoking work that is the City Garage signature.
