About

“Jurassica has been patiently crafted, like Nonna’s perfect slow-cooked pork” The Age

“At the heart of being a true Italian is undoubtedly family, and the exploration into this 21st century Italian family had me in fits of laughter because of how accurate the scenarios were.... If you have quite a close affiliation with the Italian culture, you are Italian, or even if you’re not, this show is an absolute must-see. It will leave you feeling warm inside and reflect on what truly matters in life.” Theatre Review

Set in Moorabbin, Jurassica explores what it is to migrate, to be displaced and to spend the rest of your life searching for home.

Ralph and Sara migrated from Italy in the 1950s to their concrete-front-yard house in Melbourne suburbia. Their son, Ichlis, never really forgave them for his misunderstood name, and grandson Luca is struggling to talk to his father or grandfather. Until one night Ralph is rushed to hospital and, through an unlikely connection with Kaja, an interpreter, Luca learns to reconnect.

Winner of the 2015 Green Room Award for Best New Australian Writing, Dan Giovannoni’s magical new play, Jurassica, weaves the past and present together, with a sometimes hilariously accurate depiction of migrant family life. It is about dinosaurs – just not the prehistoric kind.
