Tightly buttoned young school teacher John Grant is well-read, but an outback misadventure strands him – cashless and jobless – in the harsh and remote Aussie outpost of Bundanyabba.

He makes new "mates" who are quick with a drink, but with every skol a dark violence lurches forward. Are these blokes fair-dinkum, or is there something more sinister at the heart of this little Aussie mining town?

The entire world of Wake in Fright is conjured in a 1-person show by the always evocative Zahra Newman (The Book of Mormon) accompanied by an intense sonic soundscape from art-electronica band, friendships. Under the direction of Declan Greene, Kenneth Cook’s iconic work of Australian gothic horror is viscerally felt in the flesh.

Sydney Opera House presents a Malthouse Theatre production.
