Dreams in White is a dark thriller about secrets and betrayal. When wealthy property developer Michael Devine goes missing, his wife and daughter fear the worst. As the pieces of his disappearance start to fall into place, the disturbing story of his double life is revealed.

Directed by Tanya Goldberg (The Story of Mary Maclane by Herself) and written by playwright Duncan Graham (Ollie and the Minotaur), Dreams in White is inspired by events surrounding the disappearance and murder of multi-millionaire Herman Rockefeller in 2010, and explores the complex interplay between fantasy and expectation.

The cast features Lucy Bell (The Duchess of Malfi), Mandy McElhinney (In the Next Room), Andrew McFarlane (The Heretic), Steve Rodgers (The Kiss and Measure for Measure), and Sara West (Babyteeth).

Dreams in White will run from February 8 – March 23 at SBW Stables Theatre. For bookings visit griffintheatre.com.au or phone 02 9361 3817.
