Unacceptable, foul, disastrous, inappropriate, or awkward: Not a Good Look!

An absurdist portrait of modern Australian life, NaGL uses the conventions on clowning, vaudeville, Brecht and Dadaism and delivers a buoyant, uncharmed appraisal of a nation. Old Uncle Chuck rings the bell and in twenty-two boxing rounds, a family battles it out. With clatter and clutter, they are always divided and united. It's our family. It's our nation. It's Not a Good Look...but Look We Must!

" anarchic, fragmented, metaphoric vision of Australian society."
- Neil Litchfield, Stage Whispers

"...a provocative experience." - Kevin Jackson's Theatre Diary
