'A great wind completely blankets Perth with red dust. Some believe that an apocalypse looms. But for others – a man and his young step-daughter, two strangers stranded in an airport lounge, young lovers in a hotel suite, a bride-to-be watching her white wedding disintegrate – the storm might be a gift.
'A stunning look at the ways in which we love, blame, connect, and find beauty in the chaos of our lives.
'Tender, uplifting and unforgettable, Dust, by acclaimed and dazzling playwright Suzie Miller is about the odysseys we embark on when our worlds turn upside down.' (Production summary)
