About the Show

A term that allegedly dates back to 1855 (No, Seriously). Things that have previously been accused of being ‘(un)Australian’ include: ball-tampering, backstabbing politicians, referring to thongs as ‘flip-flops’, befriending New-Zealanders, holding a non-Australian passport, vegetarianism, various governments’ asylum seeker policies, and even worker strikes in the 90s.

Four Letter Word Theatre gives you a Double Bill show offering two unique responses to a term that highlights the prejudice and paradox, the illusion, delusion and confusion at the heart of the Australian psyche.

Four Letter Word theatre’s show is taking place in the University of Melbourne, which rests on the lands of the Boon Wurrung and Woi Wurrung peoples of the Kulin Nations. We recognise we are on stolen land and that sovereignty was never ceded. Four Letter Word Theatre would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land and pay our respects to their elders, past, present and emerging.
