From the multi award-winning writer of Cloudstreet comes an otherworldly theatrical event that shines a light on the tangled bonds of one Australian family. Following the resounding success of Glimpse and The Leenane Trilogy, The Kin Collective joins forces with fortyfivedownstairs and director Marcel Dorney to present the Melbourne premiere of Tim Winton’s searing drama, Shrine. The deeply personal connection readers have with Australia’s sharpest storyteller is brought to life by a stellar cast that includes Michala Banas (Upper Middle Bogan, McLeod’s Daughters), Ally Fowler (Wentworth, Neighbours) and Christopher Bunworth (Boy Out of the Country).

"Taylor is simply beautiful as the vibrant and kindly Jack"
- Australian Book Review

"Taylor is perfectly cast as the golden boy cut down in his prime, and the delight and vitality he brings to the moments of reliving his life give the facts of his death the necessary gravitas."
