Fully delivers a truly Engaging Narrative, whilst cleverly navigating the expected myriad of “bad relationship clichés”.

Power couples, disturbing as we deeply feel all the domestic violence pain, and quickly make abuse comparisons, between consent / controlling / brutal / violent / happy.

Young Woman 22 year old, on a “date” on the Gold Coast, Queensland.

Older Woman 31 year old, moving into an apartment in Albert Park, Victoria.

Happily married at 40, with a nine-year-old son living in Campsie, New South Wales.

Only consent is consent, and consent can be withdrawn at any time.


Minimalist and effective set design, with necessary lighting states, that each reflect and emphasize the mood.

We are quickly moved back and forth, through each eventful storyline.

Important reminder to get all Australian politicians to enact anti-abuse legislation, defining consent and defining controlling behaviour.

Christopher Nolan is the movie film director known for very experimental soundscapes, cerebral and quite nonlinear storytelling, where the deliberate intention is to completely drown out the voices of the actors. The sound engineer for KING OF PIGS, firmly believes in the unique paradigm of the infamous/famous movie film director, Christopher Nolan that requires that all sound effects and all music must always completely drown out the voices of the actors on the stage – plus requiring audiences to be able to read lips BUT ONLY for those audiences who are only interested in understanding via hearing, all the spoken dialogue.

KING OF PIGS was developed with Playwriting Australia at the National Play Festival and in the National Script Workshop.
