As part of the 2013 Selected Works Program, Theatre Works and Stuck Pigs Squealing present the world premiere of night maybe, a hilarious and disturbing free-?fall through the subconscious.
Tom abandons his sister Sasha by the side of the road. She plunges headlong into the night in search of him. Her hunt takes her to a park, an alleyway, a riverbank ? even to the far reaches of Siberia.
In the darkness she begins to peel back the layers of their shifting relationship; past the unreliability of gender, sexuality and soon discovers more than what she bargained for.
Stuck Pigs Squealing is a Melbourne based company that has developed a national and international reputation for dynamic and cutting edge theatre.
Founded in 2001 by Chris Kohn, Stuck Pigs Squealing artists and regular collaborators include Lally Katz, Luke Mullins, Jethro Woodward and Richard Vabre, Brian Lipson, Mel Page, Katherine Tonkin and Chris Brown.
Their previous works include The Eisteddfod, The Black Swan of Trespass, The Apocalypse Ber Trilogy and have presented work in Melbourne, Perth, New York and Paris.
night maybe introduces a new writer in Kit Brookman to the Stuck Pigs team and marks a long anticipated return to the Melbourne stage for this much loved company.
“The company is not interested in conventional, neatly packaged plays but in high-spirited, raw and poetic works that explore human nature at its most difficult, comical and depraved,” says writer Kit Brookman
