Going Down

Sydney Theatre Company
Natalie Yang is a published writer. Still in her twenties, her autobiographical account heavy with steamy details of her sex life, has sold copies in the big city but isn't to the taste of the readers in rural Australia who prefer the work of her rival Lu Lu Jayadi.

Natalie's ambitions are central to 'Going Down' and her rivalry with Lu Lu is the plot focus of this one act play which has its moments. Bawdy and energetic Catherine Davies certainly gives everything but her character Natalie is a bit of a one note irritant.
