At a time of geo-political tension Stephen Sewell’s early classic comes roaring back to the Australian stage for the first time in 35 years.

It’s 1980 in Berlin, and two prominent Jewish scientists are on the verge of discovering a truth that could change the world. Max, a mathematician, and his friend Sebastian, a physicist, think they’ve found the final piece in the puzzle -that whimsically named quark being sought to complete the picture of the physical world. But as we know all too well the truth is flexible. As Max and Sebastian’s increasingly obsessive pursuit draws in their family and friends their path heads more and more inexorably towards a frightening collision with the power of the state.

Emerging director Charles Sanders has brought together a team of faces old and new to tackle this thorny, deeply intelligent piece of Australian writing.

Duration: 2 hours and 30 minutes (including a 20 minute interval)

Welcome the Bright World contains adult themes, strong coarse language and sexual references. It is recommended for a mature audience, ages 15+.
