Sometimes your dreams aren’t what you imagine
Best mates since childhood, loveable rogues Charlie and Frankie always dreamt of getting out Blacktown and moving to Bondi. But with the pressure of a failing solarium business, they, along with best mate Macca, make a snap decision that finds them in an Asian prison cell instead.
Now facing their impending sentences, the men escape their reality through a role playing game that allows them to relive their past and act out their future – always dreaming of a Bondi they will never see.
Bondi Dreaming is about mateship, rites of passage and the consequences of both. Funny, honest and gripping, this mind bender of a play is proof that sometimes redemption can be found in the most unusual ways.
