NAKED & SCREAMING
by Mark Rogers
Naked & Screaming, a chamber play for two actors, throws a dagger into the heart of
relationships in Australia right now.
Emily and Simon, like many new parents, are struggling.
When Simon leaves Sydney for L.A for three weeks, it triggers a more serious conflict.
Emily leaves their child alone on a suburban train. When Simon returns, questions
about the lapse plague their relationship. Haunted by his own anxieties, Simon makes
a dangerous decision, changing the course of their relationship forever.
Rogers (Winner: Griffin Award, 2019, Winner: Patrick White Playwrights Award, 2019)
uses the birth of a child, and the newfound responsibility of caring for new life, as a
crucible to examine communication, trust and the efficacy of Australian parenting
At its core, Naked & Screaming poses urgent questions about how men and women
are constructed to talk to each other, probing the patriarchal machine that
consistently swings the pendulum in favour of one over the other.
