Stalking The Bogeyman [Australian Premiere]
 

“This time last year I was plotting to kill a man.”

Twenty-five years after he was sexually assaulted, David Holthouse learns that his 'bogeyman' has moved into his new neighbourhood. Armed with a pistol and a plan, he plots to enact revenge on the man who stole his childhood.

Presented by Neil Gooding Productions and NewYorkRep, in association with Red Line Productions, STALKING THE BOGEYMAN was first written by Holthouse as a first-hand account in the Denver Westword newspaper and subsequently featured as a podcast on This American Life.

Holthouse has now adapted his thrilling story into a play with award-winning playwright Markus Potter, and we are proud to present the Australian Premiere of this “challenging and thought-provoking piece of theatre” (Sunday Times) at the Old Fitz Theatre from May 23.

Directed by Neil Gooding (Dogfight, Passion) and featuring Graeme McRae (Secret City, Birdland, On the Shore of the Wide World) as David Holthouse with an incredible ensemble cast of Noel Hodda (Janet King, Rake), Radek Jonak (Red Dog, The Secret Daughter), Deborah Jones (Top of the Lake, A Place to Call Home), Alexander Palacio (In The Heights)and Anne Tenney (A Country Practice, The Castle), STALKING THE BOGEYMANis a riveting true story of abuse, survival and vengeance.
