From Australia's hottest theatrical outfit The Last Great Hunt, comes PERPETUAL WAKE, a brand-new comedy about the stories we tell to hide our shame.
Social media influencer Fiona West has written a stunning debut novel: Perpetual Wake. When career maker-or-breaker Paul Creel reads it, he sees himself reflected in shockingly accurate detail: He finally feels understood.
Impressed, he invites West for a “casual drink” just days before his review is published. But as they chat, he is humiliated to discover the book was intended as a hysterical satire! Declaring a silent war, he determines to bury the book before the year is out.
In this hilarious new work, the award-winning writers behind THE ADVISORS, FAG/STAG, GIRL SHUT YOUR MOUTH and MINNIE & MONA PLAY DEAD plunge the audience into a surreal and shadowy wilderness of truth, lies, and psychological revenge.
