Toast

Presented with The Blue Room Theatre
By Liz Newell


The childhood home is up for sale. Three sisters are left adrift and grappling with the sudden loss of their mother, and each other.

Candice just wants to pack up a lifetime of memories without getting sentimental, while Alex – newly sober and dreading a relapse – sneaks old bits of Tupperware into her handbag. Their adopted little sister, Sydney, is doing pretty well, when she’s not trying to tell her best friend she’s in love with her. And the rookie real estate agent is only there to pay off her credit cards.

The Black Swan partnership with The Blue Room Theatre that brought you Playthings continues in 2022, inviting you into this funny and charming work about the family we’re given and the family we choose for ourselves.

Winner of The Blue Room Theatre 2017 Awards for Best Production and Best Performance, Toast is a superbly written story about the surreal experience of loss, and a love letter to the people who hold our hand in the dark.

“Toast is a local story written by a fresh, red-hot West Australian playwright. The team is a dynamic combination of shiny, new talent and fabulous all-stars”.
Emily McLean, Director.

"A beautifully considered work, bringing laughter, tears and bittersweet memories." AustralianStage.
