WHO’S AFRAID OF THE WORKING CLASS?

by Andrew Bovell, Irine Vela, Christos Tsiolkas, Patricia Cornelius, Melissa Reeves

Five plays are intertwined in one in this story of fringe dwellers, living in an age of social, economic and moral deprivation. Mostly unemployed, and politically disengaged, they work at survival.

Recently adapted into the film, Blessed.

"With intelligence, well-judged humour and the searching qualities of truly memorable theatre, the play peels away political propaganda and notions of correctness to present a candid, difficult, searing portrait of the poor and the maringalised." - Sydney Morning Herald
