Two’s company, three’s a coven.
Armed with a cup of menstrual blood and a digital ouija board, Andy and Evie meet in the forest to hex Evie’s uncle. They’ve been talking to a dead witch online, she’s given them a spell but asked for a pretty big favour in return. What could possibly go wrong? ¯\_(?)_/¯
The arrival of Evie’s weird aunt, and Sue-Anne, the Mayor’s daughter, forges an unlikely coven and propels the story down into the nauseating dream-logic of the underworld. They must learn to speak the mother tongue. They must listen to the crone and the crow.
Calling on the almighty spectre of the Witch, MORAL PANIC unleashes all that is terrifying and unknowable about queerness and womanhood. It is an unsettling hallucination, an occult thriller and a very dark comedy. This savage new performance work from the award-winning team behind GROUND CONTROL(Next Wave 2016) and ANGRY SEXX (Melbourne Fringe 2014), asks how do we tear down the monument of masculinity, and what tools can we find in the dirt?
