Writer Fleur Murphy

What do you do when you can’t look away?

In the quiet streets of an ordinary suburb, the fence between two neighbouring houses comes down. Where once there was a clear separation between you and the couple next door, now there’s only a dirt line and human decency keeping prying eyes out of each other’s backyards.

Except you’ve noticed they have a new baby and that she keeps locking herself out. And then there are the sounds late at night that have become impossible not to hear. Should you say something, do something? But is it what you think it is? And is it really your place to get involved?

Shortlisted for the 2022 Rodney Seaborn Playwrights Award, The Fence is a scintillating solo work about privacy, bravery, and testimony by acclaimed playwright Fleur Murphy (Nothing, Hearth).

Performed by Louisa Mignone (Death of a SalesmanWentworthThe Twelve), this gripping new play will lead you through the streets we know, shining a light on the violence found in our own backyards.

“a down-to-earth piece that deserves the widest possible audience.” — Arts Review
