Wake in Fright

Concert or Performance

15 Oct 2020 to 1 Nov 2020

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 the Yabba’s ocker veneer is pierced, you better be ready for the explosive brutality pent up inside.
