WeekendNotes has 5 in-season double passes to Joe Cinque's Consolation to giveaway!

Joe Cinque's Consolation tells the true story of the death of Joe Cinque. In early 1997 Anu Singh, a law student at the Australian National University, confides in friends that she plans to kill herself to put an end to a mysterious illness. With doctors unable or unwilling to help, Anu's boyfriend, Joe Cinque, attempts to get to the bottom of her condition.

As Anu's mental and emotional state begins to disintegrate, her plans grow more macabre and more public. Joe begins to understand the true nature of their relationship while Anu blames him for her illness and vows revenge against him. After an elaborate farewell dinner party attended by friends, Anu drugs Joe with Rohypnol. Now under Anu's control, Joe's fate depends on their friends and colleagues intervening to save his life. Instead they gradually withdraw, unwilling to help or immobilised by doubt or disbelief. More than a day later, on the 26th of October 1997, Anu injects Joe with a lethal dose of heroin.

Joe Cinque's Consolation is the adaptation of Helen Garner's best-selling account of these events: an examination of collective and individual responsibility, and a crime that shocked Australia.

To celebrate the release of Joe Cinque's Consolation on Thursday, 13th October, WeekendNotes subscribers have the chance to win an in-season double pass.
