THE GOOD SON

by Elena Carapetis

“I keep waiting for someone to tap me on the shoulder and say ‘hey, Frank, thanks for filling in but that’s your life over there and you can get it back now’. I want that life.”

Frank yearns for a different life. He is the loyal, loving son of Meda, a Greek immigrant divorcee. They share a close bond but the line between parent and child has become claustrophobically blurred.

Into Frank’s life comes Ana, a beautiful, fragile woman. Their lives converge at the perfect moment. Frank has finally found a reason to free himself from the familial ties that have suffocated his dreams.

But Meda harbors a dark secret that threatens to crush Frank’s dreams and catapult Meda towards certain disaster.

Inspired by true events, The Good Son is a bold, funny and electrifying new play that explores our idea of family, loyalty and lengths we go to change the cards life has dealt us.
