25 Aug at 8pm - Theatre Season 2018

Red Stitch Theatre and Critical Stages

Jurassica is a story about family, growing old and spending your life searching for home.

Ralph and Sara migrated from Italy in the 1950s to their concrete front-yard house in suburban Moorabbin. Their son, Ichlis, never really forgave them for his misunderstood name, and grandson Luca is struggling to talk to his father or grandfather. Until one night when Ralph is rushed to hospital and, through an unlikely connection with Kaja, an interpreter, Luca learns to reconnect.

This heart-warming tale is told with humour and pathos and spoken in both English and Italian. It’s also about dinosaurs -just not the pre-historic ones!

“Jurassica has been patiently
crafted, like Nonna’s perfect
slow-cooked pork.”
—The Age
