The Return

Gap I production – November 2019

by Reg Cribb
directed by Amanda Crewes

The greater the number of bystanders, the less likely it is that one of them will help.


A thug and his junior partner in crime take a late night train from Perth to Fremantle, menacing passengers along the way.

Riding the uneasy line between comedy and terror, The Return is a tautly-written study in peer pressure, anxiety and suppressed violence in a social class which is often silenced.

Written in 2001, the play was adapted in 2006 by Cribb for the screen as Last Train to Freo directed by Jeremy Sims.
