Damian Callinan – Double Feature – Adelaide Fringe


Rymill Park/Murlawirrapurka, Adelaide

05 Mar 23

The surprise discovery of his mother’s 1946 diary leads three-time Barry Award nominee Damian Callinan on a cinematic, romantic romp through post-WW2 Australia. However, her diary poses more questions than it does answers.

With suitors lining up for 19-year-old Kathleen Purcell, will Jack Bowlen ever get the Canadian two step right? Will Ron Rogan keep his hands to himself? But most importantly for Damian’s very existence, will she notice the dapper fly boy who has just returned from active service?

The creator and star of the Netflix hit film ‘The Merger’ uses his powerful gift for storytelling to recast his parents in a funny and poignant double feature of love and loss.

“Sublime, heartwarming, hilarious – an absolute triumph.” Sammy J
