This Sydney Fringe show invites audience members to participate in a public reading of a real life rape trial transcript
New Zealand theatremaker Eleanor Bishop is behind this participatory theatre work, which poses big questions about rape culture. Performer Karin McCrackin leads the audience through a reading of a transcript from a real life case, interspersed with documentary footage interviewing young people about their experiences. Some audience members will be invited to read and others will send their responses in via text message.
“It challenges you and asks: what is theatre? It can just be people reading a transcript," says Sydney Fringe director Kerri Glassock.
