Whistleblowers

Theatre / Gymnasium

Is attack the best form of defence?

It is the final match of the field hockey season. The championship title is on the line. Winner takes all.

A committed team of young women bursts onto the field, ready for the challenge. But much more is at stake, as the play reveals back-stories and situations that the women have been experiencing. As the lines between the game and social commentary start blurring, and the team finds a collective voice of anger and frustration at the plight of women in this country, the team needs to make a vital choice: attack or defend.

Shifting between physical and visual performance, searing storytelling, and surrealist dream sequences, Whistleblowers is an honest and tragicomic call to action. A war cry for the soul.
