BLINK
“Love is not a cast-iron set of symptoms. Love is whatever you feel it to be.”

This is the tale of Jonah, Sophie, and a fox called Scruffilitis. It’s a true story, and it’s a love story. A quirky, dysfunctional, voyeuristic love story, but a love story all the same.

Sophie is worried that she is disappearing. Jonah is very good at keeping watch. With the help of a WiFi baby monitor, the worlds of two lonely individuals collide in the most unconventional ways, and a delicately moving and darkly funny story unfolds before your eyes.

THE SEASON

Blink will perform 9 February – 4 March 2017, presented in association with bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company at KXT – Kings Cross Theatre. KXT was established in late 2015 as part of a plan to help support and grow the arts community in Sydney, dedicated to independent theatre, programming diverse work and investing in new and emerging artists.

THE TEAM
This project will be implemented by a team of experienced professional artists: Charlotte Hazzard (Actor), James Raggatt (Actor), Luke Rogers (Director), Peter Gahan (Producer), Anna Gardiner (Designer), Daniel Barber (Lighting Designer), Katelyn Shaw (Sound Designer), Julianna Taahi (Stage Manager), Patrick Howard (Production Manager) and Nick Curnow (Dialect Coach).

YOUR SUPPORT

Your generous donation will be going directly towards the professional artists involved. We are all providing our services without an award-wage out of a strong belief in this work and are currently working under a profit-share arrangement. By supporting our project, you are directly contributing to the sustainability of these artists’ careers and the creation of a new theatrical production of this acclaimed work.
