Presented by PLAYLAB IN PARTNERSHIP WITH BRISBANE POWERHOUSE

When a woman finds scars left by her ex-boyfriend of many years ago etched into her bones, she begins a turbulent journey to unpack her past and discover how he got under her skin.

Based on the true story of two teenagers’ romance as it blossoms, then warps in the heat of bustling Singapore, Blue Bones is a one-woman show told with incredible honesty by Merlynn Tong.

Combining multiple characters, kung fu and arcade dance games, against a dynamic visual landscape, Blue Bones is a multi-lingual whirlwind of love and naivety, violence and courage, with the wreckage continuing to be felt across the years. Ultimately a story of strength and resilience, Blue Bones is an unflinching, honest and surprisingly heart-warming story about overcoming domestic violence.

Told in an original and innovative way by one of Australia’s most talented playwrights/performers, Blue Bones will enchant and disturb, and perhaps even wake the stories dormant in your bones.
