Melbourne true-crime story brought to life on stage at Kingston Arts

29 September 2016

How do you grieve for someone you shared a life with, when that life was a lie?

Waking Up Dead explores the story of an ordinary woman whose husband is found murdered and in the investigation of his death, learns of his elaborate secret life.

Inspired by a true story, this suspenseful production grapples with the complex nature of love, identity and betrayal.

With the use of a giant drawing-board, the woman recreates key memories of her lost relationship, questioning who she is and how to move forward with her life.

Starring acclaimed theatre actress Caroline Lee (The Flood, Alias Grace, Blue Heelers), the performance is part of Kingston Arts’ strong theatre calendar that brings leading productions to Melbourne’s south-east.

Kingston’s Manager of Property, Arts and Leisure Services Julian Harvey said Kingston Arts was proud to present top of the range theatre shows in the local community.
“Kingston Arts has some fantastic shows on offer right here in the neighbourhood to suit different tastes and budgets,” Mr Harvey said.

“Regular theatre goers can enjoy quality performances with leading casts while others can give theatre a try close to home and without breaking the bank.”
