WILD BORE


MALTHOUSE THEATRE

 

Three edgy alt-comedy stars return fire at their critics with biting and hilarious swagger

 

We all love reading a stinging review. But what if you were on the receiving end? The subversive, hilarious and frequently misunderstood Zoë Coombs Marr, Ursula Martinez and Adrienne Truscott return the slings and arrows to their senders in a biting and hilarious take on arts criticism.

 

But Wild Bore is more than an exercise in returning serve. In it, Coombs Marr, Martinez and Truscott probe the culture of the critics, their embedded prejudices and their intellectual postures.

 

Throw in side serves of vitriolic tweets, Facebook snark, bad dance routines, a speech from Hamlet,bum-shaped headpieces and you’ve got a show that’s been called everything from "an eye-watering miasma of self-obsessed guff" to "truly, outrageously funny".

 

You be the judge – if you dare.

Wild Bore will appeal to anyone impatient with the stifling mores of patriarchal culture. It’s funny as f**k. And much angrier than that The Monthly
