RIPE follows Claire, Elisabeth and the worlds they navigate together after meeting on New Years Eve on the streets of Sydney. One has just left high school, home and her mother’s judgement for a life with a man who won’t pick up the phone. The other knows the city down to its plumbing, people down to their darkness and has theorised her world down to its molecules. It’s a surreal and sensory exploration of the relationships with those who can cut to your core and the safety to be found outside of comfort zones.
One hour play.
Cast: 2 female characters.
RIPE is a burst of skyrocket with a roman candle of a script… an elegantly narrative short version of a long night. The script completely nails that delicate balance between character and plot. Sydney Arts Guide
