A religious girl and a not-so-religious boy, Izzy and Paul spent a childhood intertwined; enamoured by the universe above them and spurred by an insatiable intrigue for that world beyond their own. Two brilliant, dissonant teenagers in rural Australia, life inevitably draws them in separate directions until a decade later, when the death of Paul’s mother draws them home.
Weaving in and out of time and navigated by the canopy of the night sky, Genesis is an intimate exploration of a decade in the life of two discordant young minds, bearing witness to the moments that shape, break and make them; interrogating concepts of family, home, and compromise.
"Hinz’s work covers conflict between fact and faith, science and religion, instinct and
strategy, and all of the troubles that arise as a result of friendship, family, futures and love." Rhumer Diball, DownstageDiscernments
“Hinz has created real characters and a beautiful story to stay with audiences long after the end-of-show applause.” Meredith Walker, Blue Curtains Brisbane
