Victorian Theatre Company takes on a brutal Daniel Keene love story.
A dark Bonnie and Clyde tale set in the streets of Melbourne.
Following their acclaimed debut season (The Darkening Sky) in March, Victorian Theatre
Company return to Theatre Works with LOW – a gripping thriller from iconic playwright

Daniel Keene. After a cancelled season in May due to Covid, this keenly anticipated pro-
duction is finally about to open.

Emma and Jay are lovers, isolated and outcast from society. Money is scarce and Mel-
bourne!s streets are dark and unforgiving. Desperate to prove themselves and change

their fortunes, they take the law into their own hands. Written in 1990, LOW travels through
time and grabs us by the heart.
Rising stars Matthew Connell (Variations Or Exit Music, The Darkening Sky) and Veronica
Thomas (When The Light Leaves, Thigh Gap) are cast as the two star crossed lovers with
one of Melbourne!s most sought after directors Jennifer Sarah Dean (Moulin Rouge!) at
the helm of this compelling new production.
“It!s a story that comes from and belongs to our streets! Dean explains. “The play is firmly
set in 1991 Melbourne – a hard period in Australian history with recession gripping the
country.’
LOW will be scored by composer and sound designer Thomas Kunz (Hamlet), anchoring
the piece to the time period and bringing out the heightened poetry that Keene!s best

known for. Chelsea Neate!s inspired set and costume design bring Melbourne!s dark al-
leyways to life in the perfect venue: Theatre Works! new warehouse space The Explosives

Factory in St Kilda. Kris Chainey!s lighting design evokes noir punk and neon cityscape to
submerse the audience.

Victorian Theatre Company is fast becoming Melbourne!s most watched new theatre com-
pany; A Romp of artists making new works of theatre, radio play, documentary & film with a

focus on Melbourne-made stories.
