The Writer

Concert or Performance

15 Jul 2020 to 1 Aug 2020

A young female playwright and an older male director find themselves alone in an empty theatre one night. She wants a new form of theatre that dismantles capitalism and overturns the patriarchy. He’s turned on by the commercial potential of her rage.

A showdown between male and female, young and old, Ella Hickson’s incendiary new play comes to Adelaide after an explosive world premiere in London where it was described as “unflaggingly provocative, metatheatrical and inventive”.

Starring Emily Barclay (ABC’s Please Like Me), The Writer is a ferocious new work that rocks the very foundations upon which theatre is built.
