The Large Breast or The Upside-down Bell

 

A murder mystery and a tale of obsessive passion. A man and woman from different worlds meet beside a pond, which holds the secret to something shocking that happened between them in the distant past.

"The play aims to make the writer, Raimondo Cortese, invisible, and, in its skillful employment of situational dialogue, it succeeds. The actors tease out the possibilities of the dialogue with a light touch, making the final shock all the more effective."

Helen Thompson, The Age
