Recipient of The R E Ross Trust Playwrights’ Script Development Award 2011 – the selection panel described the work as “a very funny riff on choice and broken dreams.”
Jake has been patronised and pegged as the town “tard” all of his life but when he falls in love with Maggie anything seems possible. Making Maggie’s dream of escaping to Graceland becomes his quest, and a chance to win in a town that has labeled him a loser.
Implicated in Jake’s plans of escape are the town’s locals including Maggie’s straight-talking mother, local hard man and philosopher Richard, Jake’s boss and his wife.
True Love Travels on a Gravel Road is written by Jane Miller, directed by Beng Oh and features Chris Broadstock, Marnie Gibson, Emily Goddard, David Kambouris, Elizabeth McColl and Glenn van Oosterom.
