Join us for the first development presentation of AWGIE-winning writer Katy Warner’s Refined. Shortlisted for the 2018 Max Afford Award, this vital new Australian work will now undergo a week-long creative development right here at fortyfivedownstairs, culminating in two nights of free staged readings. Performed by a dynamite ensemble of some of Australia’s best young actors, each performance will be followed by Q&A and feedback sessions.

A booming regional factory town, a beach you can’t swim at, and the third worst school in the state. Five angry voices and one disillusioned teacher – each ringing with the rebellious grunge of the mid 90s – scream hopelessly against a vast, unseen power.

The third collaboration between multi-award winners Lab Kelpie and Katy Warner (A Prudent Man, Spencer), Refined is a raw, funny and in-your-face look into adolescence, broken dreams – and what happens to people when the economic lifeline of a town begins to fade.
