When:

Time:
7:30 pm
Details:
Don’t miss Australia’s new One Act Black Comedy about the refugee crisis. Endorsed by Order of Australia recipient and member of the Queen’s council, Julian Burnside.

Australian Premier Tour of WORM FARMING

"This is a hilarious play.

It draws out two contradictory aspects of Australian culture.

It shows the traditional, genuine Australian instinct for hospitality and concern for those in need; and
sets that against the current hysteria about refugees and, in particular, Muslim refugees.

And it captures the Australian capacity for hiding (and hiding from) our worst impulses and our worst
conduct.” ~ Julian Burnside AO QC

A hard working farming couple, their egotistical daughter, and disregarded son, are taking in a Syrian refugee… At least they’re trying to. First they must impress the hard nosed representative from the Refugee Council of Australia. This will involve wearing pants, demonstrating a sensitive cultural awareness, keeping unwanted boyfriends, girlfriends, and neighbours at bay, and ensuring everyone stays alive.

“The morbid and farcical elements in this play fit the exact requirements for a black, and in many ways, disturbing comedy. Worm Farming is dead on the money” ~ Terry Brady

Written by Australian of the Year finalist (Daniel Widdowson), Worm Farming will only be performing 6 shows in 2017. Two in Canberra, one in Sydney, two on the Central Coast, and one in Newcastle.

"Irreverent theatre that takes no prisoners! “ ~ Kate Foy

Salt House Theatre Company was established in February of 2016. It has successfully produced three major productions in that time, including a new adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. This was attended by the last Austen descendant to grow up in the family home, Caroline Jane Knight. The adaptation was published late 2016.

"An interesting satirical comedy about Australian’s response to external perceived threats and our inherent xenophobia.” ~ David Burton

“Worm Farming is very good at delivering what it promises – black comedy.” ~ Terry Brady
