GETTING AWAY FROM IT ALL

by Catherine Ryan

Sandra has landed in the middle of a street. Just her and her suitcase. And there she makes her home, an increasingly elaborate camp. The neighbours, although apparently ignoring her, are well aware of her presence. But only the Lollipop Woman makes contact, and slowly they develop a connection that reveals both their stories. Through surreal imagery, black humour, deep pain, and a gentle relationship, Getting Away From It All evokes the experiences of those who escape the tyranny of fear. It explores the complex relationship between public and private space, between what we choose to show and what we choose to see. In particular it tells a story of the seemingly endless cycle of family violence. But it also offers hope for possible change.
