What's On

King Of Pigs [World Premiere]
 

“Do you know how many times I’ve told this story? 
Cops, counsellors, the family court... I mean, fuck.”

One Woman. Four Men. She could be with any one of them. 
At 22, on a date on the Gold Coast. 
At 31, moving into an apartment in Albert Park. 
Or at 40, happily married with a nine-year-old son living in Campsie. 
Four very different worlds share an identical space; our homes.

King of Pigs throws us into a blistering series of reality pockets. Each glimpse we get provides a momentary view of a vast panoramic lie. It’s a lie every man tells himself privately but every woman lives with publicly.

Featuring Ella Scott-Lynch (Love Child, Newton’s Law, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries), Christian Byers (Friday On My Mind, Riot), Ashley Hawkes (Bite Club, The Checkout, Songs For The Fallen), Mick Bani, Kire Tosevski - with Thom Blake and Wylie Best - and directed by Blazey Best, King of Pigs is a direct response to the nature of power and the way men licence themselves to abuse it.
