(Sydney Theatre Company)

'M.Rock' is a play about communication and understanding, or their absence, between the generations. The two central characters are a grandmother (Valerie Bader) and her granddaughter (Clementine Mills). There is a 'chorus' of three performers who between them play multiple characters and illustrate the play's action, often in humorous ways. A professional DJ manages the musical background.

It is a one act play of ninety minutes played out on a discotheque type set which represents many of the locations in Australia and overseas portrayed in the storyline.

A very energetic work with quite a lot of humour. Perhaps a little overlong in its centre section but packed with many wry observations.
