Fantastic 3 act play set in Port Moresby and Darwin across three decades - 1967, 1975 and 2004. The secrets of the stereotyped Australian Expat community are exposed through a family's story told by the 'adopted' son. Strong plot, strong script and very strong cast.

over the counter snacks pre-packaged for selling and munching on prior to performances and during intermission and from memory nothing that was going to crinkle too much if you snuck it inside the show but best of the lot was the sangria - muchly yummy and could have gone back for a lot more!

Don't expect your average night out, the shows at JUTE are powerful, moving and usually very humerous too. Plays are often written by local Australian writers & emerging writers. Some fantastic works. Bring the camera for a photo with the lifesize Jelly Babies out the front.
