Joanna Murray-Smith’s American Song tackles the confronting and heartbreaking issue of gun violence, reaching beyond national or cultural borders in an intimate exploration of love, forgiveness and parental responsibility. Presented by Red Stitch and Critical Stages Touring and being performed at Frankston Arts Centre next month, American Song displays the Peninsula-born playwright’s characteristically deft wit and compassion and makes a difficult topic thoroughly gripping, wryly humorous and deeply moving.  

It tells the story of Andy, whose experience is common to many of us: the slow accumulation of a good life — love, work, friendship, family. But unforeseen events lead him to places he never imagined. As he heads off to work to give the biggest presentation of his career, he wishes his teenage son Robbie goodbye. Eight hours later, everything has changed. 

A profound tour-de-force for one actor, performed by Red Stitch ensemble member Joe Petruzzi, American Song asks: What could I have done differently? Can we ever know the moment when a good life turns irredeemably wrong? 

American Song was commissioned in the US and first produced there in 2016 to great reviews, with its acclaimed Australian premiere at Red Stitch Theatre in October 2017. 

See this heart-gripping show at Frankston Arts Centre on Wednesday, March 18, at 7.30pm Tickets: $30-$40; bookings: 9784 1060 or www.thefac.com.au
