HUSH Presented by Brown’s Mart and New Ghosts Theatre Company

Written by Ciella Williams and Directed by Lucy Clements

Nina’s waters have broken early.
She knows it’s a girl.
She doesn’t know if she wants it.

Nina lies in a pool of her own amniotic fluid in Darwin Hospital, alone and paralysed by indecision. Slowly losing her grip on reality, she is visited by her best friend who dreams of a different life for her, and an apparition of her mother as a young woman who will do anything to be forgiven. And maybe that thing slithering around in her ultrasound isn’t a baby at all…

Ciella Williams’ haunting writing balances power, trauma, and unlikely friendships with care and humour in this funny and heartbreaking instant Australian classic.

Conceived just days after giving birth to her own daughter, Williams’ Hush cuts through our cultural narratives about motherhood – instead diving into the real fears and harsh realities of young women faced with this transformation.

After receiving rave reviews in Sydney, Hush delivers a punch to the guts with immediacy and an authentic Territory edge, and stars incredible performers and artistry from across the continent.
