The summer is getting hotter with this fiery new tragicomedy.
Presented by La Mama Theatre

Auslan Interpreted: 28 Jan 4pm
Duration: 90 mins
La Mama Courthouse, 349 Drummond St, Carlton

Filling the historic four walls of the La Mama Courthouse comes the Gender & Identity warzone of DRAGGED by Tasmanian Theatre Awards 2016 Emerging Artist/Writer, Andy Aisbett, and directed by Michele McNamara, founder of Illumi-Nation Theatre Ensemble.

In this wild new play, the fight through bruised relationships, unknowing identity and 24/7 partying all collide, and leaves a mess Mum couldn't even sweep up. We follow the story of Stella, a beaten-up, glamorous drag queen and her transformation from boy to man, and man to queen. Through drug-induced hallucinations, we are thrown-up on the corner of Memory Lane and Regret Street to watch the makings and destruction of a boy in battle.

DRAGGED is an explosive piece of theatre, written on the premise of a 'massive trip', therefore 'style' is something we can simply forget about, and you should have no expectations of anything when stepping into the space. Except maybe a night similar to a 72 hour bender at Revolver; laughing, crying, fighting and the occasional pash on with your mate/ex/brother/sister – look, you get it.

La Mama Courthouse is fully accessible for all patrons. Please phone La Mama office if you have any queries: 03 9347 6948.

The performance at 4pm on Sunday 28 January will be Auslan Interpreted by Lynn Gordon and Monique Stern.
