“Exceptional theatre… It’s a must see”

“This production is, in a word, brilliant”
Theatre Travels

Against advice from family and friends, Audrey buys an old house in ruins and dreams of restoring the once magnificent garden. As she clings to the significance of the past, she searches for seeds of hope in the future.

From Secret House (Pomona at KXT) and New Ghosts Theatre Company (Iphigenia in Splott at Flight Path Theatre) comes the Australian premiere of Mike Bartlett’s UK hit, Albion, a sweeping family saga about Brexit-era Britain.

Paying homage to Chekhov’s masterpiece, The Cherry Orchard, this deeply felt drama is shrewdly funny and profoundly poignant, exploring patriotism, passion, and the seductive power of nostalgia, and speaking to a nation torn between preserving the past and radically reforming the present.

“This is everything. Myself. My family. My past. My future. I don’t want anything else but this piece of land.”
