Mad March Hare Theatre Company presents an Australian premiere

SHIVERED

BY PHILIP RIDLEY

A young couple are moving into their new home.

A soldier is being held hostage.

Two boys are searching for monsters.

All these events are connected by both family and time … but what story can be told when family and time are broken?

Covering the space of 12 years, Shivered unpicks the story of two families and then re-weaves it into something new and startling.

Seven people, one war, a derelict car plant and mysterious lights in the sky… all come together in the Draylingstowe, Essex, where the view from green hills once offered hope and prosperity for all.

Two young white men.

Shivered

Shivered is about fragmentation, about the break-up of families, friendships and community, and the shattering of certainties between reality and fantasy. Seventeen brilliantly linked scenes are performed non-chronologically, moving back and forth in time, painfully piecing together the shards of glass.

“Director Claudia Barrie’s production of this temporally shifting, multi-stranded drama is secure, clearly thought out and strikingly staged” Jason Blake SMH
