COUNTING AND CRACKING

by S. Shakthidharan

An epic new Australian story about love, refuge and reconciliation.

Radha and her son Siddartha are finally ready to embrace their lives in western Sydney, when a phone call from Colombo brings the past spinning back to life. Featuring a cast of 16 actors from six different countries, speaking in five languages, and performing 50 characters, Counting and Cracking follows one Sri Lankan-Australian family over four generations, from Colombo to Pendle Hill. This powerful new Australian play is an epic story of love and political strife, of home and exile, of parents and children.
