Winner of a Melbourne Green Room Award for Best New Play and a gold Awgie Award, Who’s Afraid of the Working Class? is a compassionate, harrowing and hilarious play about people on the margins of our society. Created by four exciting young Australian writers, scenes of urban dissolution collide. Nineteen different characters, eighteen vignettes of the underbelly of city living, the play is a graphic illustration of the dangers of economic rationalism. Gritty and passionate but with a sense of humour, Who’s Afraid of the Working Class? is about life on a knife-edge, life in our cities, happening now.
Who’s Afraid Of The Working Class? by Andrew Bovell, Patricia Cornelius, Melissa Reeves and Christos Tsiolkas
