Following their success with A Prudent Man in 2016, Lab Kelpie return to Fringe with this powerful one-woman play by West Australian playwright Liz Newell that explores the conflict, awkwardness and nostalgia of returning home.

Having just broken up with her long-time boyfriend, Daphne reluctantly returns from The Big Smoke to the tiny country town she grew up in to visit her ailing grandmother. Experiencing run-ins with a revolving door of people she hasn’t seen in years, Daphne eventually reconnects with former best-mate Aidan, sharing a long-held secret that finally brings her the sense of clarity she hadn’t realised she’d been missing.

A meditation on the concept of 'home' that examines the places and people that continually call us back—whether we like it or not—Alone Outside is a moving and ultimately uplifting look at the fraught paths we walk towards self-acceptance.

"... Newell's ability to create intimate character arcs is a skill that has clearly been developed with great care." - Isolated Nation
