Brisbane Powerhouse presents
MKA: THEATRE OF NEW WRITING, MELBOURNE
Wed 13 - Sun 17 Feb 2013
Controversial. Uncompromising. Riveting.
Andrew has been having nightmares. He’s been doing everything to stop them.
World of Warcraft. Neo-Fascism. Plastic surgery.
When the girl next door starts coming around it seems like maybe they’ll stop. But then again…
MKA’s The Economist is the first play written in response to the massacre on Utoya Island, Norway. Inspired by Anders Breivik’s journal, this disturbingly entertaining play offers a snapshot into the human psyche at its worst.
Written by Tobias Manderson-Galvin. Directed and Dramaturgy by Van Badham
Suitable for people aged 15 years and over. A free Q&A session will follow the Friday performance..
Duration: 65mins, no interval
