JANUARY 30 - FEBRUARY 10, 2018

there are lives different from ours...


An unreal journey through two disturbed minds, and the unfolding events leading up to the self crucifixion of their father in the front room. Enter the insane world of siblings Michael and Michelle. Debris is a depraved vision of the world, seen through their eyes.

LZA Theatre is excited to present their first Australian production in the dying heart of Sydney's Kings Cross district, in the gritty and intimate Blood Moon Theatre. Off the back of their OFFIE nominated London production of Lally Katz's The Eisteddfod, LZA brings a depraved and intoxicating punch of in-yer-face theatre from the pen of internationally acclaimed playwright Dennis Kelly (Matilda the Musical, Osama the Hero). Join us on an odyssey of pain, blood, love and loss.

"Released from realism, Dennis Kelly's black-humoured two-hander sings in a challenging space" - Jason Blake, Audrey Journal

"The play is intense and confrontational... [with] a sense of electrifying theatricality and macabre decadence" - Suzy Wrong, Suzy Goes See

"Lana Kershaw and Aslam Abdus-samad are impressive as Michelle and Michael, their respective story-telling is raw and compelling. Director Liz Arday expertly guides us through the nightmarish journey of the two as they plunge us into Kelly’s dystopic world" -  Joy Minter, The Buzz From Sydney
