Donating Felix

Written by Ron Elisha, Directed by Suzanne Heywood


As we all come to terms with the severity of Coronavirus and its unprecedented effect across the world, it has become clear that Q44 can no longer proceed with the current season of Donating Felix as planned.

For those of you who have purchased tickets they will be valid for future performances. We understand that in these uncertain times there may be difficulties committing to an unknown future date and that a refund may be seen as a preferable option. However we ask that you consider the possibility of donating the cost of the ticket to Q44. As a registered not for profit organisation we are able to provide your donation with tax deductible status and will issue the appropriate receipt.

Thank you again for your understanding in this matter and for all the support we have received.

Please continue to take care of yourselves and each other, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the theatre soon.

Q44 Theatre is proud to present the Australian premiere of Donating Felix.

Jane and Ross decide to donate their frozen embryo: Jane believes she is being altruistic and Ross just wants it sorted. Leah, the potential recipient, is desperate and her husband Brad will do anything to see her happy. On paper, it seems as if it should be a perfect match.  But this assessment leaves out one vital element:  Human nature.

In a play that ranges over the entire gamut of human emotion, behaviour and misbehaviour, Ron Elisha explores issues of ownership, parenthood, prejudice and privilege, with his characteristic humour and incisive perception of human foibles.
