In 2008, four internationally regarded playwrights spent a week in four widely separated Tasmanian towns, drawing on those communities and their people for inspiration for new stories. The result of these community immersions is Sex, Death and a Cup of Tea – an eclectic offering of keenly observed perspectives on the Tasmanian experience. Linked by journeys across beautiful landscapes and between emotional states, Sex, Death and a Cup of Tea is warm, funny, poignant and provocative theatre. These four short plays are unique and at the same time universal stories, reminding us how our own sense of place can connect us to those miles away.
