Jack’s mother hovers over him like a helicopter. She treats their ultramodern mansion like a war zone, paranoid that there is danger around every corner. Wrapped in cotton wool his whole life, Jack wouldn’t know real pain if it hit him over the head.

But that all changes when an accident pushes him into the life of his Sudanese neighbour Thomas, and his family inadvertently invites danger and chaos they never saw coming.

In Helicopter, the latest offering by the Melbourne Theatre Company, the malaise of the modern world is put under the microscope when the lives of two young men from opposite worlds collide; is one person’s suffering acutely more painful than another’s.

Newcomers Charles Grounds and Terry Yeboah do a fantastic job of juxtaposing the two worlds they live in, while Paul Denny as the guilt-ridden father pull out another power-house performance.

Helicopter challenges the perception of war in the modern suburban landscape through the clashing experiences of two very different families.
