Publication & NSW regional tour of Good With Maps

12 October 2018

Currency Press has just published Good With Maps and Teacup in a Storm in a two-play edition with an Introduction by Dr Laura Ginters from Sydney University’s Department of Theatre and Performance Studies.

Buy the book from your local bookshop or order it online. Here’s the link to the Currency website—and here’s the back cover blurb:

Good With Maps
When the world map was full of gaps, the Amazon topped the list of places unknown to western explorers. In the twenty-first century are there any ‘unknowns’ left? On a trip to the Amazon, the writer ponders this and other questions as she struggles to deal with her father’s journey through Parkinson’s disease towards what is perhaps our last great unknown—death. Good with Maps is sad and confronting, but it’s also funny and thoughtful, celebrating the power of literature to transport us to places both real and imagined.

‘This is a complex, deeply rewarding piece of theatre, one that balances cerebral exuberance with shattering emotional power.’ David Kettle, The List (Edinburgh Festival) 

Teacup in a Storm 
The jungle of bureaucracy, the drudgery of cleaning up yet another shattered plate, the isolation of responsibility. Caring for someone with a disability or enduring health need is no fairytale. But in this mix of documentary and fictional narrative, Noëlle Janaczewska weaves a story of heroines and dragons—and battles fought both inside and out. Teacup in a Storm is a window into the largely unseen world of carers and the power of love and determination.

Winner of the 2017 AWGIE Award for Community and Youth Theatre.

Critical Stages is presenting a regional NSW tour of Siren Theatre Company’s production of Good With Maps. The tour begins in Bega on 30 October and concludes in Gunnedah on 16 November. Between those dates you can catch it in Wellington, Warren, Condoblin, Moss Vale and Inverell.
