Sydney Theatre company - Vere

The Sydney theatre company have invited us to this event,

Vere (Faith)

A new play by John Doyle

For his much anticipated new play, playwright John Doyle (The Pig Iron People) offers a powerful meditation on science, spirituality and human frailty.

Paul Blackwell (When the Rain Stops Falling, Tartuffe, The Ham Funeral) returns to STC as Vere, a physicist at the peak of his career and still enthusing infectiously about his subject. Out of the blue he is given a shattering prognosis and must rapidly reconcile his professional ambitions and personal relationships with the certainty of his own mortality.

One of the great debates of our times, God versus science, is played out with Doyle's typical charisma and cheek. The play is brimming with intellectual engagement, gallows humour and wise, witty footnotes to culture.

Director Sarah Goodes (The Splinter) makes her Drama Theatre debut with this thoughtful and topical new Australian work.

Warning! Coarse language

We will likely not be sitting together as the show is heavily sold out and this night only has 84 seats available.

People are welcome to organise another night as they have a month long run, but tickets are selling out fast. Let me know and I will put it up as a separate event if you want. The Promo code at the start of this event will work for all weeknight shows.

Please book your tickets before the 18th of October with the link below using the Promo code above this description, available only to members of our meetup.

      oh wow - so why was this even announced on here? what was the point of giving people the code a month too late? I don't get it...

      I announced this over a month ago, and put in the original announcement that the tickets had to be ordered by then, as you can see up the top in the description.
