A man and a woman repeatedly cross paths in a strange and quiet place. She has a gambling habit. He likes satay chicken. While the first few meetings seem genuinely serendipitous, each meeting becomes less so as they begin to seek each other out for purposes that are never entirely clear. A mutual sense of alienation from the world around them could be mistaken for love.
Elmo is the second part of A trilogy of love stories – a series of plays which includes Bunny (2011 Melbourne Fringe Festival Innovation in Theatre Award), and Little Ladybug (2013 Malcolm Robertson Foundation Grant, 45 Downstairs).
