Take up a seat here,
Play me a tune.
Lost you to history,
In a time of Boom, Depression and Rebirth, a young banker yearns to become a bohemian and befriends a musician. As their friendship develops, they come to terms with a changing world and the challenges of addiction.
Travel back to the days of Marvellous Melbourne. Encounter the opium dens, street hustlers, corrupt land banks and the wild Australian Bush. With an ensemble of 8, The Measure of a Moment explores the themes of youth, duty, self-destruction and grief. It includes an original score and songs.
