Weepie (3 stars)

This article is from 2009.


For a hard-hitting portrayal of emotional violence and its shocking physical manifestations, this play is awfully funny. For an exploration of how we seek transcendence through love, religion, or acts of murder, it is rooted surprisingly firmly in the everyday. For a company of newcomers, the Lincoln Company presents a remarkably assured piece of theatre. A few rough edges do little to take away from this engrossing, if bemusing, experience.

Chris Goode's dynamic, unforgettable play of startling originality, inspired by a real murder. A radical analysis of male violence. Surprisingly funny. Explicit language, nudity, and best of all, adult themes! 'Hilarious and shocking' (Australian).
