Set in the jungle of post-#MeToo show business, this ferocious comedy brilliantly skewers the hypocrisy of men in power who trumpet their 'wokeness'.
A talented female playwright, an Oscar-winning actor and an ambitious theatre director meet to discuss a play that promises glory for all. But as lines are crossed and the power of Hollywood looms, the love-in threatens to descend into mayhem.
Winner of the top prize, the 'Best of Edinburgh' Award, at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and a hit at Adelaide Festival, Outhouse (John, Gloria, The Flick) present a Sydney premiere from a truly provocative and exciting playwright. Ulster American is confrontational, uncomfortable and brutally funny.
Not for the faint of heart. Not to be missed.
