Dean Cross is returning to Canberra with his first solo show, Finding S___ T____.
I’m assuming we have to actually go to the show to learn what S and T stand for, and as a marketing device goes it’s working because I really, really, want to know.
The premise sounds rather interesting also.
Finding S___ T____ is an intimate look into the private life of a convicted criminal. Whilst serving his sentence inmate S___ T____ kept a meticulous hand-written journal describing his surroundings, the people he met, the challenges he faced and the revelations he made.
However the journal was discarded, perhaps in an attempt at a new start or maybe even following the death of the author, and on its way to becoming landfill, fate intervened. The journal was rescued from the refuse of strangers, dusted off and given a new life over ten years after its creation. Its words are devastatingly honest and insightful and were never intended for the eyes of others.
But here they are nonetheless.
Finding S___ T____ is morally questionable, theatrically simple and profoundly moving. A work of pure Non-Fiction it provides an unparalleled opportunity to experience first-hand the thoughts, emotions and innermost secrets of a young man searching for himself and his place in the world from the confines of his prison cell.
