Coral (Steph Locke) is drawn to newlywed Rick (Stewart Mulligan) in the play Away, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

A quintessentially Australian story, mixing drama, humour and home truths, is the latest offering from ARENAarts as the play in question celebrates its 30th anniversary.

Written by Michael Gow and directed by Christine Ellis at the Latvian Centre Theatre, Away is the story of three different families who go on their annual Christmas holidays in late 1967, all burdened with their own baggage.

First performed in 1986, it is a winner of the New South Wales Premier's Literary Award and has become one of the most widely-produced Australian plays of all time.

Away is also on the high school syllabus in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia.
