Julia Sits Waiting
In a house in the midst of a renovation, Julie, married to a police officer, and Mick, an Anglican priest, discover extraordinary intimacy – and colossal disaster.
A different kind of love-at-first-sight story, Julie Sits Waiting exposes the complexity of desire, as these ‘old’ characters, rich with life experience, have the audacity to insist upon reckless, youthful passion.
Acclaimed performers Fides Krucker and Richard Armstrong connect in a startling and profound way, breathing life into the intimacies of sweat, flesh and breath.
