Gender fluidity and dysfunctional families unravel in Red Stitch’s new season

Red Stitch Actors’ Theatre are going to have their busiest and brightest year yet, with new works and Australian premiers set to grace their stage in the coming months.

Acclaimed actor and playwright Taylor Mac will present the Victorian premiere of his work Hir in partnership with Midsummer. The play tells the story of a dysfunctional family determined to dismantle the patriarchy.

Fury, a provocative piece by Joanna Murray-Smith about a boy vandalising a Mosque, will also have its Victorian premier.

Also amongst the season are three new Australian works, a play from pulitzer prize-winning Annie Baker, an erotic French-Canadian thriller, and a play about a boy getting lost in Disneyland.

Artistic director Ella Caldwell said that the plays intend to inspire a deeper understanding of humanity. The stories “are poles apart,” she said,  “but they all have in common an intimate and juicy investigation of humanity, and an ambition to provoke.”

The season will begin next year, but tickets to all shows are available now.
