Eat, prey, hate

World Premiere

Andrew moves to Singapore, where his features shine and his skin is extra-white. But, in profile, he still looks like a child’s drawing of a shark. And he must keep moving forward, though he smells blood.

Superiority tackles self-loathing in this solo show that really hates itself, but still thinks it’s better than you. Poorly Drawn Shark is a brutal attack on conventional storytelling: drenched in salt water and biting hungrily at Australia’s fetishisation of Asia.

Nauseating, grotesquely funny and brutally aware, prepare to Eat, Prey, Hate in this autobiographical takedown of western travel narratives. Created with and directed by Vidya Rajan, Poorly Drawn Shark sees theatre-maker Andrew Sutherland (Unveiling: Gay Sex for Endtimes) dredging the shallowest of waters: himself.
