Windmill Theatre Trilogy

By Matthew Whittet, directed by Rosemary Myers


"A thrilling experience."

- The Advertiser

It’s a fantasy, manga, hip-hop, slacker Australia, sometime in the near future. The leaders have disappeared and it’s every man for himself. In the fog of his urban chaos, a young man returns. A guy with strange power and a backpack of destruction. His name is Robin. In a bold retelling of the classic folklore Robin Hood, Fugitive is a hysterical, anarchic knife-edge ride that is contemporary Australian theatre at its best.

Windmill Theatre’s Fugitive, School Dance and Girl Asleep form a unique trilogy of rites-of-passage stories by Helpmann Award-nominated writer/director team Matthew Whittet and Rosemary Myers. The adrenaline of the alpha male, the pain of the loser, and the dark inner world of the teenage girl underscore these three distinct works each delivering an outrageous, hilarious, painful, violent and ultimately celebratory experience.
