THE WEEKEND BY HENRIETTA BAIRD

by Henrietta Baird

Lara, a Sydney mum working interstate as a dancer, receives a distress call from her youngest son. Dad hasn’t been seen for days and they are out of food. Lara has the weekend to track him down. And if she succeeds, what will she find?

First showcased in development at the Yellamundie National First Peoples Playwriting Festival in 2017, and now presented in full production by Moogahlin Performing Arts and Carriageworks, dancer-turned-playwright Henrietta Baird’s debut play blends laughter, hope, love and loss into a young family’s search for a new beginning.
