to house. While it is important to note that they are moving to a different location therefore the characters themselves are changing, it is also important to register the darkness surrounding the single spotlight on Sylvie or Ray. This Darkness is metaphorical, referring to the question which was needing to be answered by Australians ‘ what is out there?’, ‘ Who is out there?’ these people (characters) are part of our lives but do we know and understand them. This is what the Darkness represents. It draws the audience’s attention to how little we know about the world around us and that these characters who the audience try to understand are perplexing. Parts of who these characters are can be understood though so many aspects of their personalities are confusing. Matt Cameron used this confusion to make the audience understand that even these characters aren’t what they seem. Australian Contemporary theatre is a tool to address those thoughts which are a part of Australian life. It plays on the fears and insecurities of the audience using characters which people, although they may not wish to, find connections to. These characters provide a medium in which to translate the many ideas of the lives of the audience

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
