Tuesday 18 October
Theatre play (MA14+)
Presented by shake & stir theatre co and Ipswich Civic Centre
The creative powerhouse behind the smash-hit, critically-acclaimed productions Animal Farm, 1984 and Wuthering Heights returns with a new Australian play.
Directed by Michael Futcher and featuring a cast of some of Queensland’s finest actors, Tequila Mockingbird visits themes of racial prejudice, the perversion of justice and the consequences of alcohol abuse, all in a uniquely Australian context.
After a woman is attacked in a remote Australian town, the racist underbelly rears its head as the community targets a young Indian doctor who has recently relocated to the area. Only one local man possesses the strength to uncover the truth and defend the accused in the ultimate fight for what’s right but first, he must take care of other matters, a little closer to home.
Nominated for six 2014 Matilda Awards and winning Best Mainstage Production – don’t miss this bold, brave new work examining a darker side of Australian culture lurking just below the surface.
This project is supported by The Playing Queensland Fund and arTour, initiatives of the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, part of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet.
