Angel Gear & Dangerfield Park

I can’t pretend that I enjoyed this experience, but it made me realise that the deepest human emotions are universal, and that decent values can prevail even in the most hopeless­ seeming societies. - Alison Cotes - Daily Review

Angel Gear

With Cindy Nelson, Zachary Boulton, Sven Swenson, Keiran Law, Casey Woods, Sam Plummer, Michael Deed, Stephen Geronimos and Daniel Stockwell

After the break-up of her marriage to Edge Nagle, Gary Redding’s mother took him to live in London. Gary hasn’t seen his father since he was four years old. His Mum always painted a picture of Edge as a quiet man whose greatest sin was being dull. She lied. Since her death Gary has wanted to re-connect with Edge and meet the two half-brothers he has recently learned of. The trip is planned to be six weeks long, but within an hour of meeting his foul-mouthed, hate-filled father, Gary will be terrified he will not live to see London again.


Dangerfield Park

With Nick Barclay, Christos Mourtzakis, Brian Lucas, Zachary Boulton, Sven Swenson and Michael Deed

Like the
 bastard child of
 Kath & Kim
 and Wolf 
Creek, the
 exceptional
 Angel Gear by
 Sven Swenson 
is a production 
about unlikeable people and their horrible existence…I came away from this La Boite Indie production both awed and repulsed by Swenson.

Sonny Clarke – Aussie Theatre

When it goes horribly wrong — and I’ll spare you the details, because the plot is complex but too satisfying to reveal, and the language and behaviour is beyond forgiveness — is where the play rises almost to greatness, when themes of love and loyalty become important, and where unaccountable relationships are played out. I can’t pretend that I enjoyed this experience, but it made me realise that the deepest human emotions are universal, and that decent values can prevail even in the most hopeless­seeming societies.
