A life is a strange thing, nephew. It is never half here. It is everything, and then it is gone. If you are cranky about something, either fix it, or forget about it.
In June 2011, Ronaldo Abokâ€™s life is in chaos. It should be a time for joyous celebration â€“ South Sudan, the homeland he was forced from is about to be become the worldâ€™s newest nation. But Ronaldo is torn in too many directions.
Four Deaths in the Life of Ronaldo Abok is the third instalment in the True West Theatre season of independent theatre at Riverside Theatres and is playing from Thursday, 17 November to Saturday, 26 November.
Ronaldo Abok is studying filmmaking, working his part-time job at the cinema, ferrying Aunt Mary and her kids around town and visiting Uncle Atem in hospital. And although Ronaldoâ€™s certain heâ€™s the next Tarantino, he canâ€™t get his films off the ground â€“ in Australia you need English to have a voice. Then he meets Rachel â€“ a girl who knows her mind but questions whether Ronaldo knows his. Will he be a Lost Boy forever, or will he find peace?
