An unflinching examination of masculinity, abuse, and power in the place we feel safest – our homes.

King of Pigs

Theatre, Lismore City Hall


From the mind of critically-acclaimed writer Steve Rodgers, comes this astonishing new play that boldly explores the issue of violence against women.

The audience is taken on an unflinching journey through the lives of multiple women in both familiar and terrifying situations.

At 22, on a date on the Gold Coast.
At 31, moving into an apartment in Albert Park.
Or at 40, happily married with a nine-year-old son living in Campsie.

These very different worlds share an identical space; our homes.

Directed by Blazey Best, featuring strikingly beautiful sound design by Tegan Nicholls and original composition by iOTA, King of Pigs reveals the nature of power, the way men abuse it, and the lives of the women who live through the lies.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ – “A harrowing, thoughtful, intelligent play.”  – Daily Telegraph

⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Rodgers’ surprisingly sensitive script… centres women and doesn’t excuse or downplay the behaviour of these men.”  – Time Out

⭐⭐⭐⭐ “It is disturbing, thrilling and fascinating. Recommended without reservation.”  – Stage Noise

A Must-See. It was a brilliant experience that shed much-needed light on a very real, close-to-home issue.”  – Backyard Opera

Important, engaging and thought provoking.” – Broadway World
