Land of Lost Content

By Henry Madd

Directed by Nic Connaughton & Lauren Lambert Moore

Land of Lost Content is an empowering story about friendship, adolescence, and life not going to plan.

Henry and Jake grew up with their mates in a quiet country town called Dulowl. A town where they forged friendships in bad habits and damp raves as they stumbled through adolescence looking for something to do. Then Henry moved away.

Now he’s back but there’s no enjoying a welcome-home-pint without facing up to the memories he left behind.

A compassionate, funny and deeply moving take on life in a small town.

Starring playwright Henry Madd and Marc Benga (BOYS, The Pappy Show; Macbeth, Orange Tree Theatre)

Content Warnings: References to drug and alcohol use, sexual and domestic violence, and self harm.
