After the success of their debut, Red Sky Morning, Red Stitch Actors Theatre is set to stage their second work, Stop.Rewind.

A deft and recognisable comedy with heart, written by 2010 Patrick White Playwright Awards winneer/playwright Melissa Bubnic, the production will play an exclusive Sydney season from July 3 – 14.

Is it too late the live the life you’ve always wanted? Stop. Rewind follows a disparate group of co-workers at a departmental office who struggle with exactly this question, and the compromises they’ve had to make on their dreams. There’s Trevor, who is worried he’s wasted his life; Dim, who wants to be a musician, even though his ‘temporary’ day job has lasted for over a year; Heather and Tabitha and Nina have problems with their personal and sex lives.

It’s all the same story until a catastrophic event forces the departmental workers to examine their own lives and what it is they really want – and what they are prepared to sacrifice to get it.

STOP. REWIND runs at the Glen Street Theatre from 3 – 14 July
