Intoxicating gothic horror-com
We all have regrets from when we were kids, don’t we? Some more than most.
Grace, Wendy and Jason abandoned a man trapped in a well as he begged for their help. As they grew up so did their denial, and they cling to their yearly dinner party rather than trying to face what they’ve done. This time however, Jason has had enough. What’s hiding under the table?
Well Mannered uses absurdism, shadow puppetry and physical theatre to ask if ignorance really is bliss.
Originally devised as part of TILT as part of WAAPA’s Bachelor of Performance Making, Well Mannered is back and bigger than ever. Directed by Samantha Maclean (Tissue), performed by a killer cast of emerging artists, with sound design by Drew Kraplijanov (Between Solar Systems, Frankenstein), we cordially invite you to dinner.
Are you hungry?
