Wayne Harrison directs the world premiere of a new Australian play, Young & Jackson, by Don Reid, at fortyfivedownstairs from 5–22 March. Set in the final weeks of World War II, it covers the lives of three young navy boys on leave and the woman who will change all of their lives. VP Day is imminent, but they don’t know it. They just hope it will all be over soon, the Yanks will go home and all their probable futures will be made possible. But right now there’s the high life to live before they call time in the main bar of Young and Jackson’s, that iconic Melbourne pub where they will climb the stairs to Room 24, sip a black market sherry and begin a story that will take half a century to complete…
We have two double-passes to give away for the preview on Thursday 5 March at 8pm. To enter, email email@example.com with “Young & Jackson” in the subject line.
