Profit-share AUDITION Call Out: Technicolor Life by Jami Brandli

at The Depot Theatre - Sydney

The Depot Theatre presents the Australian premiere of
A bold, moving and magical celebration of life, love and missing parts.

Directed by Julie Baz and Designed by David Jeffrey

An award winning Australian premiere about how families cope when a wounded female soldier returns home and attempts re-entry into ‘civilian life’. Billie, a young Iraq War soldier, loses her left hand and is sent home. Her book smart teenage sister, Maxine, with the help of her new imaginary friends - Lorelei Lee and Dorothy Shaw from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes - and her mother, attempt to help Billie, but she refuses to talk about her war experience. Their grandmother, Franny moves into the household with her twenty wigs, love for American musicals, wine coolers, and cigarettes. Franny has a plan for a good-bye party that threatens to tear the family even further apart.

“Technicolor Life is as colorful as its title implies...the script is like a bold burst of cherry red.”
