STIRLING Theatre’s latest play is a story about loss, hope, friendship and leaving the past behind.

Wembley Downs resident Jane Sherwood will direct Ten Quid, written by John Grimshaw, which follows a young man returning to Manchester 40 years after his family emigrated to Australia.

Mark’s goal is to honour his brother’s wish of scattering his ashes over the sacred turf of his beloved football team but his plans are thwarted.

“Mark finds many things have changed yet some are still the same,” Sherwood said.

“Ten Quid is about a reverse culture shock and expecting everything to be the way it was, as if time stands still, while forgetting the same passage of time has taken place in both locations.”

Iluka resident Nathan Di Giovanni plays charismatic DJ Pete, who he described as “camp and colourful”.

“Pete’s in his 20s and has a real passion for fashion and music, particularly old-school ’70s music,” he said.

“One of the challenges is that Pete is somewhat self-centred when it comes to having a conversation.”

Ten Quid is at Stirling Theatre in Innaloo from April 26 to 28 and May 2 to 5 and 9 to 11.
