Short Synopsis

An award-winning new Australian play by acclaimed writer Dan Giovannoni. 

Jurassica is a multi-generational migrant story about family and language, told with humour and pathos in English and Italian.

Ralph and Sara migrated from Tuscany in the 1950s to their concrete-front-yard house in suburban Moorabbin. Their son, Ichlis, never really forgave them for his misunderstood name, and grandson Luca is struggling to talk to his father or grandfather.

Until one night Ralph is rushed to hospital and, through an unlikely connection with Kaja, an interpreter, Luca learns to reconnect.

Winner 2015 Green Room Award for BEST NEW AUSTRALIAN WRITING, with nominations for BEST PRODUCTION, BEST DIRECTION, BEST SOUND DESIGN.

Nominee 2016 Australian Writers' Guild (AWGIE) Award - Stage. 

Jurassica was commissioned and developed through Red Stitch’s new Australian writing program, INK.
