Ugly Mugs

Thursday to Saturday 26-28 April

GNaW Theatre presents Peta Brady's Ugly Mugs.

"Everybody's capable of anything. If they think of it, they can do it." 
A girl on a footy field cops a blow to the head and her bag is stolen. A teenage boy grapples with his role in a disturbing event. A woman relives a nightmare while her doctor looks on. None of them saw it coming. None of them were ready for what happened next.

Taking its title from the name sex workers use for aggressive clients, this play interrogates the culture of violence against women lurking in the shadows of every Australian city. Daring, provocative and topical, it asks complex questions about vulnerability and responsibility. 

Directed by Pearl Nunn (Inherit the Wind), assisted by Samantha Lambert (Grace) and starring Amy Wilde (The Age of Consent), Steve Wilson (Lieutenant of Inishmore), Oliver MacFadyen (Much Ado About Nothing), Taylor Reece (Little Women), Graham Wilson (Sherlock Holmes) and Katy Carruthers (Inherit the Wind).
