MOUNTAIN

Mountain creative development hero 2 cop

Geelong Arts Centre, June 2022

'Mountain' is the story of a man in pieces. Bound by paralysing grief, he takes matters into his own hands and becomes fixated by the idea of hiking up a mountain.

 

By turns playful, mysterious and raw, Mountain exists at an achingly beautiful, sometimes messy intersection of fable and certitude — a world where tiny lakes appear in the kitchen and grieving men find feathers in their cereal.

 

The man’s journey up the mountain opens precipitously outward, to encompass not just his own voice, but the voice of the mountain, the wind, of a planet crying out for what it’s losing and what it’s already lost.

 

Continuously shifting perspectives from the epic to the deeply personal and bringing to the stage a deeply-felt story of transformation, 'Mountain' is a hymn to the transformative power of grief; to the wonder of the unknown.

"★★★★★

Mullins is riveting... A truly intelligent piece of literature... transcends the boundaries of its limitations."

                        - Heather Jeffery, London Pub Theatres

A chance encounter with an old friend leads recently-unemployed Nick to take a job in the country as a tutor to two young children. The job seems perfect, the family he's working for too good to be true.

But then the stones begin to arrive...

A contemporary gothic mystery in which a splintering present gives way to our planet's murky future.
