The Berry Man


By Patricia Cornelius

Set on an unproductive farm, The Berry Man is a grounded and raw story of unrealised potential and the triumph of spirit.

It’s about growing things; potatoes, berries, babies. 
 It’s about growing up – gathering all the elements of the past and letting them go, like scattering seed. It’s about talk of the past and whether silence is sometimes a better way.

Eric wants to be a farmer.  Marjorie wants to be a mother.  Fate and a stubborn refusal to help each other appear to condemn them to never achieving their dreams.

Patricia Cornelius’ script is rich in affection, insight and gutted admiration for her flawed and damaged characters.

A tender, funny, life affirming, heartwarming and quintessentially Australian play from one of our finest playwrights.
