“A powerful work... It's impossible to keep the story at a forgettable distance.” The Age

Elegy is a lyrical, searing exploration of loss, displacement and a longing for home. Based on verbatim interviews with refugee survivors of brutal regimes, this performance is an intimate character study and an edge-of-your-seat thriller.

Starring Gareth Reeves (Bell Shakespeare’s Richard III, MTC’s Straight White Men & Malthouse Theatre’s Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again) and directed by John Kachoyan (Bell Shakespeare), it is a lament for lives in exile and, more importantly, for the dead left behind.
