Wake in Fright

BLACK SWAN STATE THEATRE COMPANY OF WA PRESENTS A MALTHOUSE THEATRE PRODUCTION

WAKE IN FRIGHT ADAPTED FROM KENNETH COOK’S NOVEL BY DECLAN GREENE WITH ZAHRA NEWMAN

IF YOU’RE A GOOD BLOKE, YOU’LL BE ALRIGHT. RIGHT?

“BRILLIANT, BOLD AND DEEPLY UNNERVING.” FIVE STARS – THE AGE

PRICES: $26-$59

G’day. Welcome to the Yabba. Just passing through? It’s the best little town in the world. Things a bit grim? Chin up. John Grant is well-read, but an outback misadventure strands him – cashless and jobless – in a harsh and remote Aussie outpost, Bundanyabba. So, he makes new ‘mates’: they’re quick with a drink, but with every scull a dark violence lurches forward.

Are these blokes fair dinkum, or is there something more sinister at the heart of this little Aussie town? The entire world of Wake in Fright is conjured in a one-person show accompanied by a sonic assault from art-electronica band, friendships.

Under the direction of Declan Greene (Blackie Blackie Brown: The Traditional Owner of Death, Eight Gigabytes of Hardcore Pornography), Kenneth Cook’s iconic work of Australian Gothic horror is felt in the ?esh. Bring sunscreen, buy a beer and wear your ear plugs. Once we pierce the Yabba’s ocker veneer, you better be ready for the explosive brutality pent up inside.
