Hardened from a life filled with bullies, dead-beat boyfriends and no sense of hope, Chloe uses her sexuality as her armour and her weapon.
Chris’s sexuality is utterly under-used. Always on the wrong side of cool, he’s living a very different version of hell.
But when ‘Odd Boy’ Chris meets ‘Chloe from the Underworld’, an intense connection is formed. Suddenly, a different life seems possible.
Winner of the 2012 Griffin Award, This is Where We Live is a love story that conjures Orpheus leading his Eurydice out from the underworld of small town hell, painted by Vivienne Walshe’s unique poetic language in this vivid, dark and inventive new Australian play.
"The text flows like a river, rippling on the surface and sometimes cold and treacherous beneath - at once inviting and wild."
