reviews

“You’ll go home and think about it for weeks.” – Glyn Davies, ArtsHub

“… a well-crafted, intelligent and entertaining new Australian play.” – Nicola Fearn, Real Time

synopsis

Bastard Territory is a confessional human drama about a man and a city, carving out an identity. Mixing wry humour, raw insight, a dash of Tennessee Williams and a killer 60s and 70s soundtrack, it’s a powerful and affecting yarn.

It’s Darwin in 2001 and Russell and his boyfriend run The Tectonic Plate, a hip cafe, art gallery and queer cabaret dive. Its walls are about to be shaken by some earth-shattering truths in this new Australian play.
