Prospect Terrace – A Veranda Theatre Production

by Angela Murphy

Warring siblings, an ageing patriarch and a dangling inheritance.

What can possibly go wrong?

Set in a Queenslander in Queensland, this is a funny, bitter and quirky take on the dynamics of a dysfunctional family.

We can all relate in some way.


Pepper’s once normal life is falling apart. Her fractious father Jack has taken nasty to a new level, her spoilt younger sister Bunny dishes out unwanted social-worker advice and her far-away floundering brother Rob has continued his romance with the bottle. To top it off her estranged teenage daughter Megan has publicly blanked her.

When 80-year-old Jack ends up is hospital, decisions need to be made about his future and the much-loved family home on Prospect Terrace. We watch as the family grapples with the past, as they rediscover forgotten truths, hidden treasures, and lost love.

Told though witty dialogue, nostalgic songs, a Queenslander aesthetic, and narrated by Delores who isn’t exactly who she seems, Prospect Terrace explores the powerful dynamics that confront us when parents age, inheritances dangle and the family home needs to be sold.
