Capricorn is a bittersweet play about love, loss, identity, culture, sexuality and pet fish, and debuts at La Boite Theatre until Sunday 12 August.
Written and directed by Butchulla and Kabi Kabi writer Aidan Rowlingson, Capricorn is an unconventional rom-com that follows the fractured trajectory of a relationship in decline and asks whether it is possible to love someone and hate them at the same time. It dissects the doomed relationship of ill-fated lovers Sam and Ally, telling the story of their gradual uncoupling from both protagonists’ viewpoints as well as that of their pet fish, Here Fishy Fishy Fishy.
Capricorn’s heartbreak is tempered with surrealism and comic relief and touches on environmental issues, institutional corruption and the importance of protest along the way.
