What's On

Merciless Gods
 

Presented by Little Ones Theatre and Griffin Independent 

From migrant camps to pill-popping hipster dinner parties, from prison cells to gay saunas and porn shoots, Merciless Gods is a vicious and tender portrait of contemporary Australian society, capturing the haunting aspects of the human psyche.

Multi award-winning Christos Tsiolkas is one of the most significant writers in Australia. This first ever stage adaptation of his short story collection, Merciless Gods, takes you deep into worlds both strange and familiar, introducing you to characters who will never let you go and situations that will haunt you forever.

Told from diverse cultural perspectives, Merciless Gods by award-winning playwright Dan Giovannoni is urgent, dirty, glorious theatre.

“Dan Giovannoni’s script is talented and Nicolazzo directs charged performances… Neither flinch from the disgust and discomfort, nor the piercing of delusion, Tsiolkas demands. Merciless Gods is compelling, confronting theatre.” ★★★★ The Age
