"Am I your something old?"
Sutton's life, meticulously chosen, is a testament to her aspirations. The white picket fence, a husband, three children; these were the chapters she wrote for herself. But amidst her well-thought-out life plan was something Sutton could never have accounted for...Dana.
Today is Sutton's wedding day. Dana has been invited but Dan will be in attendance.
Dan who was once Dana.
The collision of Sutton's present and Dan's past self sets the stage for a compelling exploration of closeted relationships, self-discovery, and the intricacies of human connection. Presented in collaboration with Midsumma & Abbotsford Convent, ALTAR is Em Tambree's playwriting debut. ALTAR was inspired by Em Tambree's lived experience of falling in love for the very first time inside the confines and constraints of an Evangelical Congregation in Regional Queensland.
ALTAR is honoured to have been developed In-Residency with Abbotsford Convent and Midsumma Pathways. ALTAR invites you to transcend the boundaries of traditional theatre and immerse yourself in a site-specific performance at the Rosina Courtyard; Peter Rowland's elegant and charming wedding venue nestled inside the Convent's grounds.
ALTAR stars Evie Korver ('Sutton') and Eddie Pattison ('Dan') as childhood best friends turned strangers with direction by Kathryn Yates. This strictly limited season is set to be an emotional pilgrimage that will leave you breathless.
This summer you are invited to a wedding you'll never forget!
