UKNOWING is Occupy: Theatre, Art, Multi-Media’s first production. Written by Chris Le Page and co-directed by Chris Le Page and Georgia Murray. UNKNOWING follows the lives of 5 young Australians living in Sydney navigating, heart break, new sense of agency, personal trauma, career goals and paying rent on time! The characters; Eli, Beau, Sammy, Scott and Amy all have one thing in common, they have no idea what they are doing and are living day to day trying to figure it out.

UNKNOWING starts with Beau’s return after leaving mysteriously, without a word, a month prior.  Throughout the play all 5 characters learn and grow by the secrets kept, friendships becoming closer and sometimes their friendship breakdowns. One thing’s for sure, the “real” world is here, unclear and ready for these 5 characters whether they are ready for it or not.

UNKNOWING hits the stage on the 15th of November and closing of the 18th at the Blood Moon Theatre in the World Bar. 


Set in the small space of the Blood Moon Theatre, co-directors Chris Le Page and Georgia Murray handle the traffic of the play adroitly. The play’s structure features mainly monologues and duologues that allow the actors to find nuance in their roles and skip past the dangerous territory of character stereotyping to develop complexity and believability. Moments of intimacy are delicately handled, resulting in a heartfelt and moving experience for the audience. Martin Quinn is compelling as Eli; one can feel his pain and confusion. Claire Crighton excels as Sammy and rides waves of angst with skill and dexterity. Cheng Tang provides many of the play’s lighter moments, and is positively chilling when he doubles as Beau’s father. Quaid Kirchner takes time to hit his stride, but is wonderful when his reunion with Eli is consummated. Rebecca Waters’ character, Amy, is a little disconnected from the main plot, yet the actor finds meaning and purpose within all her scenes. These are people we know, these are people we’ve met and, perhaps, these are people we have been.  - Bryan Culter. 

I saw a little bit of me in every character, and I journeyed with them through their entwined lives. I was thinking “that was me in my early twenties! I thought I was the only one in an awkward work scenario!” How a range of bitter sweet emotions can be conveyed to an audience in such an intimate theatre is absolute genius! - Yolanda Harbon
