Queenwood presents Ruby Moon
When trust leaves the neighbourhood…
A missing child, her parents’ grief, and the secrets hidden within a neighbourhood – they are at central to Australian playwright Matt Cameron’s “Ruby Moon” being staged at Queenwood on 23 and 24 November.
Starting from a dark fairytale scenario (a child goes missing on the way to visit her grandma), the play takes place within a street in a suburb that could be any of ours.
The cast is relishing working on this powerful, unsettling Australian play. Queenwood Head of Drama Greg Friend said that the play sparks questions about trust and paranoia, while also exploring the impact of loneliness and grief within our suburbs. “It’s a great play to stretch our senior student actors, with surreal, dark humour blending with tragedy” Mr Friend said. “It’s no surprise this work has featured on HSC drama lists as its themes are highly relevant to the questions of safety, community and trust that are so prevalent in our current circumstances.”
