Steven Snell’s award-winning play Keeper is set in the aftermath of a violent party in which a young man dies.

The production was inspired by a tragedy in Snell’s youth -“ a party that broke out into a brawl and ended with a fatality.

I didn’t set out to recreate the detail of that night but thought it was a good starting point for a thriller, Snell said.

I wanted to write a play that continually built suspense over an hour of real time, leaving the audience wondering what’s happened and who’s telling the truth about it.

Keeper won Snell the George Fairfax Memorial Play Award in 2005 for his ability to push the drama to increasing intensity.

With a great cast and critical acclaim from Australia’s theatre bigwigs, the production is definitely a must-see for casual and regular theatregoers.

Keeper preview Tuesday 4 March, tickets $20. Season 5-23 March, tickets $32, $25 concession, Bookings: 9699 3444 or www.belvoir.com.au.
