Alison Rooke‘s Combat Fatigue is a meditation on art, love, loss and a woman’s search for freedom.
A dark incantation. A letter that shouldn’t be read. What would you do if a letter arrived addressed to you from a prisoner on death row? The catch – you’ve never heard of him before in your life, but you hear his voice clearer and sweeter than any other. Combat Fatigue is the story of gallery owners, Sam and Pippa who live in Sydney’s affluent inner west. Childhood sweethearts who, when faced with the aftermath of a devastating loss, discover their love has soured.
Combat Fatigue was first produced as part of Sydney Fringe Festival at The Boiler Room, Factory Theatre premiering on 17 September, 2010.
ISBN: 978 1 925338 18 8
"Combat Fatigue can boast some pretty impressive dialogue. Rooke has a hypnotic way of mixing words that makes even the most confusing blend of fantasy and reality come across as clear, charismatic and convincing."
