The dark side of mateship.
Multi award-winning playwright Patricia Cornelius has created a dynamic new Australian play - Savages - which takes a tough look at masculinity and misogyny amongst a pack of ordinary young men.
Premiering at fortyfivedownstairs, Savages is a cautionary tale about a group of men who don’t really know themselves or what they can become.
Four friends embark on the holiday of a life time – but their excitement is soured by anger, bitterness and the disappointment of their own livesâ€¦ as the pack forms, the dark side of mateship takes over.
With Savages, Patricia Cornelius frankly confronts the realities and nuances of contemporary life with engaging characters and poetic text.
