The View From Up Here
Written by Fiona Spitzkowsky
Directed by Julian Dibley-Hall

In the ashes, everyone’s been scorched.

Eva and Lily have returned to the farm following a catastrophic fire season. The family home has burnt to the ground, the fences have melted, the neighbours have fled and the animals have perished. Maggie, the matriarch, is living in a caravan on the blackened earth where the house once stood, tending her new vegetable garden and refusing to leave her land. Painful family histories are revealed that force questions and confrontations to the surface.

How much can this family ask of one another amidst the ashes?

Tackling the lived realities of a world increasingly affected by global warming and the impacts on our experiences of family, The View From Up Here reflects and raises questions about the tapestry of our Australian zeitgeist. A powerful theatrical experience investigating how we might find hope in one another, in order to face tomorrow together.

A new Australian play written by Fiona Spitzkowsky and directed by Julian Dibley-Hall, The View From Up Here features much lauded actors John Marc Desengano, Brigid Gallacher, Chanella Macri and Emily Tomlins. Five years in the making, this topical and compelling world premiere season is slated to be a true highlight on the 2022 Victorian Arts Calendar.

The production is proudly supported by Creative Victoria and City of Port Phillip
