King of Pigs

One Woman. Four Men. She could be with any one of them. 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. Four very different worlds share an identical space; our homes.

Written by Steve Rodgers (Ray’s Tempest, Savage River), King of Pigs throws us into a blistering series of reality pockets. Each glimpse we get provides a momentary view of a vast panoramic lie. It’s a lie every man tells himself privately but every woman lives with publicly.

A direct response to the nature of power and the way men licence themselves to abuse it, King of Pigs is directed by three-time Sydney Theatre Award winner, Blazey Best (Miracle City, Only Heaven Knows, Gypsy).

The production features a stellar cast including Ella Scott-Lynch (Love Child, Newton’s Law, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries), Christian Byers (Friday On My Mind, Riot), Ashley Hawkes (Bite Club, The Checkout, Songs For The Fallen), Mick Bani, Kire Tosevski – with Thom Blake and Wylie Best.
