The past is what you make it.

John saw his brother Michael die. He seems to have forgotten it, until now. His brother Peter saw it too, but remembers things differently. Together, they revisit the past in search of a common truth. But this search has terrifying, unexpected consequences for them both.

Winner of the Patrick White Playwrights’ Award in 2011, Phillip Kavanagh is a playwright of exceptional delicacy. Replay is a beautiful meditation on the fluidity of life, childhood nostalgia and the fallibility of collective memory. It reminds us that moments of chance, lost or taken, can determine our destiny.

“Griffin Theatre Company once again supports an imaginative, innovative new work by an Australian playwright.” Daily Arts Guide, Paul Nolan 

“Kavanagh’s script is at once ethereal and tough – as delicate in its observations of boys’ foibles as it is flinty in understanding where that can lead … Replay is a fascinating portrayal of that fragile and deceptive fraud: memory.” Stage Noise, Diana Simmonds

“Memory, time, family, truth: these are all themes that will ensure audience members engage with their experience as it goes beyond the realms of mere entertainment.” The Brag, Tegan Jones

“In this delicate new drama, Patrick White Playwrights’ Award winner Phillip Kavanagh experiments with form – and time and space – to examine how different people deal with trauma.” Time Out
