 "I  left the play feeling I had experienced one of the truest reflections of the complexity of growing up in an Australian small town. I cannot recommend this production of Wayne Tunks' Flame Trees enough. Go see it." SYDNEY SCOOP

"The Depot is part of the Marrickville Enmore/Newtown burgeoning theatre scene. Vibrant Young and Raw. The play is a reflection of that." SYDNEY ARTS GUIDE

“Flame Trees is a compelling script, and a worthwhile addition to Australia's theatre scene… It bucks trends of the genre and keeps the audience engaged.” THE MUSIC

“A great demonstration of why we should sometimes turn off Netflix and get out there for a much more memorable night supporting and enjoying the talents of our creatives.” SLEEP PILE


 
Years ago, Tess left her small country town in the back of a police wagon after confessing to lighting the fire that devastated the town and killed her best friend. Now she’s back and most of the townsfolk aren’t exactly happy to see her – least of all her Aunty, her ex-boyfriend and his new fiancé. This is the story of one woman’s fight for redemption.
 
Over the past sixteen years, Wayne Tunks, has gained a reputation as one of this country’s leading independent theatre dramatists. His work has been performed all over the country, and even internationally.
