Critical Stages & The Uncertainty Principle present
Sunset Strip by Suzie Miller
An Australian dramatic comedy about love, family dysfunction and making the best of lousy situations.
At Sunset Strip the only people left are those who couldn’t leave. Arriving home after a bout of chemotherapy to this once thriving summer hot-spot, Caroline finds the lake completely dried up, the holiday-makers long gone.
Yet her younger sister, the ever-optimistic Phoebe, remains doggedly hopeful. Between a stint in rehab, caring for her father (Lex Marinos) whose dementia is only alleviated by training his goldfish, and losing her kids temporarily to DOCS, Phoebe has managed to find love in Teddy, a local fallen fella with a big heart. And now that Caroline is back, Phoebe is determined to make life fabulous.
Suzie Miller (Caress/Ache) examines all manners of love, family dysfunction, making the best of shitty situations and prosthetic breasts. Directed by Anthony Skuse, Sunset Strip finds the humour in tragedy and creates an unlikely path for humanity to triumph.
"Miller dangles the prospect of happiness like a lure on a fishing line...Tenderly gripping, frequently funny. A tender exploration of love, loyalty and patience” Jason Blake Sydney Morning Herald
