ABOUT THE SHOW
From the mind of critically-acclaimed writer Steve Rodgers, comes this astonishing new play that boldly explores the issue of violence against women.
The audience is taken on an unflinching journey through the lives of multiple women in both familiar and terrifying situations.
At 22, on a date on the Gold Coast.
At 31, moving into an apartment in Albert Park.
Or at 40, happily married with a nine-year-old son living in Campsie.
These very different worlds share an identical space; our homes.
Directed by Blazey Best, featuring strikingly beautiful sound design by Tegan Nicholls and original composition by iOTA, King of Pigs reveals the naure of power, the way men abuse it, and the lives of the women who live through the lies.
