Jenny lives in a small Queensland mining town; she’s almost finished Grade ten and is struggling to balance school, her part-time jobs, her wayward sister, her relationships and everyone’s expectations. When the charismatic Seb flies into town, Jenny’s balancing act is thrown into chaos and her world threatens to collapse around her.
Fly-In Fly-Out looks at how families and communities deal with upheaval and how we strive to adapt. The play examines universal themes through the prism of the mining boom and the influx of Fly-In Fly-Out workers in a small community.
Fly-In Fly-Out was commissioned by the Education Community Alliance, produced by debase productions and supported by the Judith Wright Centre and ArTour with financial assistance from the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland. Fly-In Fly-Out premiered in April 2013 and toured Central Queensland.
