An unlikely bond is formed as Ana, a Hungarian widow, befriends her estranged neighbour Catherine, a young aspiring actress. As the two share their stories, wisdom and wounds, they immerse themselves in the world of war-torn Hungary in search of a better understanding of what it means to truly be “in the life”.
Nominated for the 2011 Helpmann Award for Best Play, Neighbourhood Watch is a celebration of the humour, strength and friendship that can rise out of tragedy. The charming tale of an odd couple who prove that it is never too late to bridge the divide between age, culture, and the suburban fence.
We love this play here at Monkey Baa, and we are excited to be bringing this production by Illuminate Educate to our theatre.More
