Kate Mulvany

Published by Currency Press

2 Male 1 Female

A compelling, tightly-woven and thrilling exploration of a very real family and the repercussions of war

Meet Rose Maloney ...

Her dad Danny went to Vietnam. Her grandfather Brian is ex-IRA and today is their collective birthday

From this intimate reunion, The Seed opens itself up over and over again until a silent family battle becomes a national story about finding new life amongst the rubble of old wars

This play has a very special kind of honesty and humour to it which sorts the great lies we buy into from the reality we live through


'Kate Mulvany's story, her play about her story and her performance in her play are extraordinarily powerful and moving. This is an important work that deserves a long life' ~ John McCallum, Australian

'The Seed is probably the best new Australian theatre work of 2007' ~ Diana Simmonds, Stage Noise

'... a beautiful work from a burgeoning writer that shines a pure light on war' ~ Nicholas Pickard, The Daily Telegraph
