Moving, inspiring, Valentine’s play is about all of us – and a portrait of this city at its raffish, recalcitrant best.
After years of research, and a lot of help from the community, Alana Valentine’s much-anticipated story of a little chapel in a back street of the Cross premieres at Belvoir.
The Wayside Chapel under the Reverend Ted Noffs set itself up for those who might not find a place elsewhere to welcome them, and over the years has become a home and haven in a sometimes brutal town.
This play is about the quietly revolutionary act of marriage – sometimes in the face of fierce resistance from family, from society, from the church hierarchy. It’s the story of a space where those who didn’t quite fit in to the mainstream could have their walk down the aisle.
"You might remember a few years ago, back in BC times, we asked for stories of people who were married at the Wayside, and you responded with great enthusiasm and generosity. Now Alana’s put that mountain of material into a play of quiet heroism and heartache. In our inner Sydney haven we present a tribute to another Sydney haven. And see Light Shining in Buckinghamsire too – the experience of seeing two plays with the same cast will make each play all the more haunting and rich." Eamon Flack
