A brand new comedy-drama looking at a gloriously dysfunctional Australian family, this is modern story telling at its best!
Told over the course of one weekend in a suburban Australian family home, SPENCER tells the story of a tight-knit family led by single-mum matriarch Marilyn and her three adult children – wayward daughter Jules, mouthy coulda-been Ben and AFL golden-boy Scott.
About to meet the young son – Spencer – he never knew he had, Scott and the family have returned home to help mark the occasion. With the surprise appearance of Ian, the father they barely remember, the entire family is forced to work together to clean up both the house and their own fractured relationships as the clock ticks down to Spencer’s arrival.
Starring Jane Clifton (Prisoner) and Roger Oakley (Home & Away) and supported by Lyall Brooks (A Prudent Man), Jamieson Caldwell and Fiona Harris, SPENCER employs classic Australian vernacular, lashings of humour, and recognisable characters that ask us to consider how much our family defines who we are, if we can exist without them and whether we ever really grow up…
