Sweet Road - State Theatre South Australia 2000

by Debra Oswald

 Sweet Road is a deceptive text in the sense that it seems incredibly simple. At first sight, it’s a road movie on stage, a group of characters who, for various reasons, are thrown onto the outback highways of this enormous country and whose stories sometimes connect and overlap. Its construction is wide-open and very simple – a chunk here, a chunk there. But on a closer reading, Oswald’s sophistication starts to reveal itself. Despite the apparent random quality of them all on the road, they form a disparate community. We are invited as an audience to combine them into a whole, a representation of our world – the old, the very young, the lost, the hard-up, the misbegotten and the dispossessed. It’s subtle and under-stated but this is the secret to the heart of this play. Somehow, the combination of experiences in this play and the harsh environment in which it is set says something profound about our connection to this country, and to the strange fear that post-colonial Australia has of its heart.
