Public Dancing is trenchant, visceral theatre that mainlines the highs and lows of dependency. This is a poignant and beautifully shaped play offering a sensitive, darkly comic appraisal of Australian youth.

Public Dancing is a sermon on inactivity - a cloud of smoke hovering in front of the TV set. A deft portrayal of group house mentality, unemployment and rave culture. A must see for anyone who has stayed too long at the party. {{PlayboxLogo}}
