Award-winning performer Bron Batten wrestles with love and war in an explosive interrogation of her ill-fated affair with a conservative military official. A bittersweet romance crossed with an action blockbuster ‘far more than a story of unlikely lovers… Astonishing’ **** (Time Out). ‘Will have you both belly laughing and questioning your own beliefs… Not for the faint hearted’ (StageWhispers.com.au). Winner: Summerhall Edinburgh Touring Award, 2019; Arts House Evolution Award, Melbourne Fringe Festival 2019; Best Theatre Category Award, Perth Fringe Festival 2020. Waterloo is supported by the Australian Government as part of the UK/Australia Season 2021-22.
