MACHU PICCHU

By Sue Smith

World premiere

Finding hope amidst the ruins

Lisa McCune is back at STC for the first time in almost a decade in this moving new play. From acclaimed Australian writer Sue Smith (Kryptonite, ABC TV’s Mabo and Brides of Christ), Machu Picchu explores love, loyalty and healing – both physical and spiritual – in a delicate but unflinching way.

McCune plays Gabby, a woman who has everything she could want – a successful career, a loving husband, a brilliant daughter and the best of friends. But still, something is missing. When a terrible accident leaves her husband paralysed, she has to confront secrets and desires that have lain dormant for years. The question is, what will stand the test of time?

State Theatre Company of South Australia’s Artistic Director Geordie Brookman, who directed Smith’s Kryptonite in 2014, returns to bring to life this deeply affecting world premiere.

“Do you think this is the most perfect moment of our lives?”
Gabby
