Matthew and Missy are outsiders. They each live alone in the new suburbs that have magically appeared at the edge of Canberra, where houses look into paddocks, where streetlights meet darkness and where human connection dissolves into the void.

Discarded from society and alienated from his own life, Matthew seeks purpose through a campaign to improve the intersection of Gundaroo Drive and the Gungahlin Drive Extension. Missy is spooked by a threatening presence outside her window and needs a confidant. Reluctantly thrust together in the mortal struggle with the meaning of each other’s lives and the apparitions that stand between them, the only thing that can save them is in short supply. Compassion.

The Slip Lane is an original absurdist play that peels back the veneer of suburbia to reveal the unlikely array of everyday joys, cruelties and lives it holds within. With the national capital’s newest conurbation, Gungahlin, at its heart, it ranges from the local to the metaphysical to speak about Australian life today. 

The Slip Lane is written and directed by Julian Hobba, Artistic Director of Aspen Island Theatre Company, and follows the critical acclaim for his production Bartleby at The Street in 2014. Featuring Canberra’s finest performers and theatre designers, and a collaboration with contemporary visual artist Danny Wild, The Slip Lane promises to be a profoundly whimsical meditation on life in the ‘burbs.
