Stuck in a rut for eternity
Stuck is an all-new, original Australian one-act production from Company O and is wonderfully written and directed by Andrew O'Connell.

Stuck in the middle without you


Boasting a strong starring cast of Andrew O'Connell as Tim; A young school teacher, who finds himself caught between two very attractive women. Tatiana Dunn as Violeta; A young, attractive and deceptively complicated woman, who has recently found out that her Visa is about to expire and she might be forced to leave the country, as well as her job of school teaching and Sylvia Cornes as Anne; An unlucky in love school teacher, lusting after Tim, who has strung her along for years with his flirtatious ways and unknown to him, has completely broken her heart by also flirting with Violeta.

Will they ever become unstuck?


This is truly a story of "people yearning for but fearing fulfilment." and "The story of someone who wants to get on with their life but can't, and two people who can get on with their lives but won't."

Stuck is a highly relate-able roller-coaster ride of emotions


Set in the city of Perth, Western Australia, the script deals with many issues that people from across the country can relate to, from the mundanity of work to getting smashed on Melbourne Cup Day and even touches on domestic violence and drug addiction.

The meltdown


For a show with a very minimal cast, crew and set, it has a lot to say. With a set of well-written characters and an intriguing plot, which has quite a few twists and turns, it leaves you wondering how many people in your day to day life are more than they seem on the surface.

The only thing I'd like to see change about this play is if it were just a little longer, as it left me wanting to see what happens to the characters next, which leaves me in the hope that this wonderfully refreshing production might have a sequel on the horizon. One can only hope!

All they really have is each other - But is that really enough?


Company O's production of Stuck is for a mature audience only, as it contains adult themes.
