SYNOPSIS A decade after the infamous inquiry into the corruption that tore Queensland apart, George Verney is still caught up in the nightmare. He is a disgraced journalist and bit-player with a scandalous past. Following ten years of self-imposed exile, a graphic murder forces his reluctant return to Brisbane. In a town that has forgotten him, George must seek out the truth before it is too late for partners of old. In this dangerously dark play, George must confront his past to find a way to let the dead rest in peace.

Adapted from the thrilling crime novel of the same title by Andrew McGahan, Last Drinks offers a dramatic insight into Brisbane’s very own underbelly of the 1980s.

PRODUCTION HISTORY Last Drinks was commissioned and then first produced by La Boite Theatre Company at the Roundhouse Theatre in 2006.

Published alongside Rio Saki and Other Falling Debris by Shaun Charles
