5 Redwood Close: A New Australian Musical
Part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival
Written by Lachlan Boldt and Cindy Jiang
After a tense reunion dinner between Logan, his estranged mother Alice, and their respective partners, a broken car traps the four in the family home for the night. In the hours that follow, dark secrets are revealed and old traumas relived, as Alice and Logan attempt to confront the past.
After its successful tasting at UMMTA’s ‘The Sitzprobe’, UMMTA is back for its third consecutive year at the Fringe Festival with this honest and vulnerable story exploring family, living with trauma, and what it means to be gay in modern Australia.
