UPDATE: We've reached our target! Thank you so much to everyone who has helped back this project and get it off the ground, we're really looking forward to sharing C.S. Lewis' wonderful work with you! Tickets will soon be available at flightpaththeatre.org



When a bus load of people trapped in a grey, joyless town take a trip to Paradise, they realise that it’s not what they expected. It’s far too real! They all have something they’re holding on to preventing them from enjoying the wonders around them - one man’s pride, one woman’s shame, one man’s ego, one woman’s greed. One by one they are confronted by guiding spirits, but letting go of their desires is far harder than it seems, and the bus back to their old miserable town is always waiting.

After a sell-out production at the Factory Theatre in 2016, Resolved Theatre Company is bringing The Great Divorce to Marrickville's new Flight Path Theatre from September 25-October 5. With a script wonderfully adapted from C.S. Lewis' novel by Roslyn Hicks and a cast of 8 talented performers, this show hopes to inspire conversation about how we can allow ourselves to see heaven if we insist on holding on to our own personal hells, and shines a light on how when we let ourselves be ruled by our vices we divorce ourselves from true joy and proper relationships. 

Putting on any show requires a lot of up-front costs, so in order for us to have the funds to make this the best show it can possibly be, we're asking people to support us by essentially pre-pre-purchasing their tickets. Simply donate the cost of a ticket and select which performance you'd like to attend, and once we hit our fundraising goal we'll book you in and send you an email to confirm. Due to website limitations and to make sure we don't overbook, we can't process more than two tickets per Kickstarter account. To book more than two tickets you can use multiple Kickstarter accounts, or wait until we've reached our target and regular tickets go on sale. We can't offer preview or concession discounts through this platform, but we'll do so once tickets are available for purchase.

NOTE: There is no allocated seating in the venue, meaning you can book tickets at separate times and still sit together, so if you have friends you want to invite along their tickets can be booked later!

Risks and challenges

Our greatest risk with putting on a show like this is that the right people won't get to see it, so please be thinking about people you would like to bring along who might benefit from C.S Lewis' ideas!
