2023 Annual Report The Last Great Hunt

The Hypotheticals 2023

Potential parenthood in a burning world. Pour the wine.

The Hypotheticals is a savvy exploration of evolution, the human race, fantasy and fear, directed by Adam Mitchell. The Last Great Hunt is thrilled to bring back this sensational production for a grand debut in Perth after a sell-out World Premiere at Darwin Festival in 2021.

Meet two best friends in their mid 30’s – a single woman and a partnered gay man – who are deciding whether to have a baby. Together.

She’s the daughter of immigrants, living on unceded land. He’s a middle-class Australian who has grown up in a world that told him he could be anything he dreams, but he hasn’t really become much.

Together they ask where do you belong in your family’s history? What does it mean to bring a child into a world that’s burning? And if a man is gay, isn’t that evolution’s way of telling him to step out of the gene pool? But then… isn’t becoming a parent a natural evolutionary instinct? Is it right? Is it right for them? And what happens if you have a kid and just get a really annoying one?

Winner of the Brown’s Mart Theatre Award in the 2020 NT Literary Awards, this captivating production by Jeffrey Jay Fowler and Sarah Reuben combines deeply personal storytelling and imaginative elements together, as they contemplate their futures and the future of their (yet to exist) children.

“Candid honesty that Fowler and Reuben bring to not only their script, but to their powerhouse performances.”“Fowler and Reuben never do anything less than absolutely rise to the challenges they set themselves”
