Themes of violence, specifically domestic violence, and the abuse of power and authority, are addressed in Wollongong Workshop Theatre’s (WWT) latest production, The Removalists.
So WWT will use the play written by Australian playwright David Williamson in 1971, to raise money for the Wollongong Women's Information Service - a local organisation that support women and families in crisis.
Five dollars from every ticket sold during the season of The Removalists will be donated to the service.
Last year, WWT's production of The Laramie Project raised over $1100 for a local LGBTQIA organisation.
The play directed by David Lester is supposed to be a ‘’microcosm’’ of 1970’s Australian society.
The original version is known for its blend of boisterous humour and horrifying violence, to tell the story of a rookie cop involved in a case of suspected domestic violence.
It plays at Wollongong Workshop Theatre’s premises at 194 Gipps Rd, Gwynneville from July 21 to August 5..
