'The Distance' | 29th May - 5th June 2021

Author: Deborah Bruce | Directed by David George

The play explores the limits of friendship as well as the theme of parenthood, it is a show that
pushes boundaries and goes against the conventional family etiquette. With The Distance we
see the main female lead Bae decide at the age of 40 to just up and leave her husband and two
small children behind in Australia. Having made a bold choice about her life, old friends struggle
to support her, or even to understand. Another secondary theme at the heart of the play is that of
friendship. Imagine a circumstance where the unconditional support of a strongly bonded group
of friends falls apart and instead of bringing them closer, one person’s decision starts to erode
everyone else’s sense of self. These are what the main three female characters have to contend
with in this bold new play. Although the show has a heavy content it is sure to make you laugh as
well as a middle class drama and comedy touching on taboo subjects.
