Good Works (1995)
09 June 1995 – 08 July 1995 Beckett Theatre
Playbox Theatre Company,
New Writing Theatre
Provides a window into the lives of two Irish Catholic families, the Donovans and the Kennedys. Spanning several decades and three generations, this story exposes some of the darker moments that colour many of our family histories. By turns angry, incisive, tender and tragic, Good Works is Nick Enright's most complex and most personal play.
This production toured to the George Jenkins Theatre in Frankston and the Alexander Theatre in Clayton before a return season in the Beckett from July 25.
"ENRIGHT HAS FASHIONED AN EXTREMELY COMPLEX, DIFFICULT AND POWERFUL PLAY, EMOTIONALLY CHARGED, INTELLECTUALLY CHALLENGING. IT IS WITHOUT DOUBT DESTINED TO BECOME A MAJOR WORK IN THE AUSTRALIAN THEATRE."
