What's On

Girl Shut Your Mouth

Bad things happen to girls who go out after dark. 

Gita Bezard's (The Last Great Hunt) 'Girl Shut Your Mouth' is an exciting dark comedy about ordinary living under extraordinary circumstances. 

When the world you know has been ripped away, what lengths will you go to just to survive?

Katie, Grace, Mia and Darcy are your average young girls. They love boys and dresses and the idea of a feminist future. 

Everything about them is normal. 

Except their friends die on a monthly basis. Except their lives are in danger if they go out after sunset. 

Except they aren't really your average young girls at all. 

When Katie is shot in yet another attack on their freedoms, her bullet quickly becomes her ticket out and over to a place rumoured to be free of prejudices, rules and restrictions.

But is anywhere really that perfect? And how can her friends go too? 

A poignant new Australian work that comments on the crisis' facing refugees through the lense of young, feisty women ready to take their futures in their own hands. 

This production returns to Sydney after a critically acclaimed run at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in 2020 and marks its Sydney Premiere.
