Ivor Bowen and Devon Taylor return to the Daylesford stage in this intriguing and disturbing story of a condemned man's last thoughts as told to a journalist. By sharing their stories, these two characters discover an unquenchable connection. Are they who they say they are? Why have they searched for so long? Do they exist purely for the hunt? Using video, projections and lighting to highlight the reading, Murmur Collective will transform Door 3’s multi-media room into a feast for the senses.
Tickets $15 full/ $12 concession
