A Nest Of Skunks

3 – 13 August 2016

By James Balian & Roger Vickery

 


Equal Runner Up, Best Script, FAW National Literary awards, 2015.

Collaborations Theatre Group returns with a new Australian play, a dark and sticky thriller about a family of asylum seekers sheltering in a house that proves to be anything but safe.

“…Very original & powerful. Of all the scripts in the season, this is the one I’m most intrigued by…” Julie Baz, Co-Artistic Director, Depot Theatre.

Refugees are “dirty skunks”. Thrown into processing centres, they face deportation at a moment’s notice. Teams scour the country searching for skunks and the ‘handlers’ protecting them. Informers are everywhere. In one night the masks and motivations of skunks and handlers alike are stripped away. The ending will surprise and subvert audience assumptions.

James Balian has a long list of film, television and stage credits as writer and director. Roger Vickery’s work has been published in Australia and overseas. He has won over 60 writing awards.

$5 of every ticket sold for the performances on August 3rd, 7th and 10th will be donated to the Asylum Seekers Centre.
