Featuring the largest cast to ever grace The Old 505 stage, THE HOUSE AT BOUNDARY ROAD, LIVERPOOL is the story of Australias post-war immigration played out in the same house over four generations. The play has been written collaboratively by four different playwrights each of whom have a unique immigrant heritage: Violette Ayad (performer in Coram Boy), Thomas De Angelis (Chamber Pot Opera), Chika Ikogwe (performer in Fangirls) and Jordan Shea (Kasama Kita). In 1953, Roberto and Anna are building a house in Boundary Rd, Liverpool. They only arrived from Italy last year, and the heat, inconsistent work and lack of friends is starting to wear them out. By the mid-1970s, the Italians are gone and now an alcoholic Jovy and his two adult sons are struggling to make enough money for themselves to get by, and all the while the family back in the Philippines keep calling and asking for cash. At the cusp of the new millennium, two young Lebanese/Palestinian women return to their childhood home on Boundary Rd and cant quite say goodbye to it even though the olive tree they loved is gone. And in 2018, young Chioma wrestles with a serious dilemma: a party this weekend, a stern Nigerian mother, and a high school crush that she just cant get over. What could go wrong? THE HOUSE AT BOUNDARY ROAD, LIVERPOOL is a celebration of the Australian immigrant experience that is sure to be 2019s most exciting new play.
