Tom William Mitchell
 

Woodcourt Art Theatre in association with Merrigong Theatre Company present Tom William Mitchell, by lauded, local playwright and director and UoW alumni, Mark Rogers. Tom William Mitchell is the exciting final production of the inaugural 2018 MERRIGONGX season.

Tom William Mitchell works for a broadcast news company. Employed for his idealistic ‘truth-saying’, ex-Survivor contestant Tom William Mitchell works his way up from the copy room to the interview couch in a matter of weeks. But will climbing the ladder in a post-truth world force him to lose touch with his true convictions?

Tom William Mitchell is a razor-sharp satire about our hyper-mediatised society. The play examines the rise of contemporary populism and the ever-changing media landscape via a slick aesthetic which mashes up TV news and contemporary theatre practice. Tom William Mitchell is a cutting-edge piece of theatre for the here and now
