Brothers Wreck


Ruben is full of anger and dancing on the edge, struggling to cope with his brother’s death. As Darwin swelters, tensions in the house are high as Ruben slips further and further adrift from all those around him: his counselor, his best mate, his sister, his beloved Aunty. When the summer storm finally breaks, the family must pull together and find the strength to bring Ruben back from the brink.

Jada Alberts’ breakout play is one of the most moving pieces to grace Australian stages in recent years. Starring Trevor Jamieson (The Season, Melbourne Festival), Nelson Baker (The Warriors, ABC TV), Lisa Flanagan (Australian Rules), Leonie Whyman (Black Comedy, ABC) and Dion Williams (Gallipoli, Nine) this is Jada’s directorial debut of her hit powerhouse play – heralded as a triumph in its Sydney premiere season. Transporting us to her hometown in the Top End, Jada leads us through a gripping drama about a grief-stricken family whose love for each other knows no limits.
