Leaving The Nest


Presented by Tremayne Gordon

Flying or Falling? A matter of perspective?

“Everyone forgets that Icarus also flew.” – FAILING AND FLYING by Jack Gilbert.
Andrew is leaving home. Again. Flying or Falling? A matter of perspective? Previously presented at Adelaide Fringe and Fringe World in 2020, Andrew finally comes home to roost this year in Brisbane where his story hatched ten years ago at the Festival of Australian Student Theatre in 2014.

“It’s philosophical and sophisticated; its pacing is great.” – Mark Wickett, Reviewer for Adelaide Fringe 2020.

“Tremayne Gordon commands the stage as the shy, awkward Andrew.” – Marisa Quinn-Haisu, Reviewer for Fringe World 2020.
