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 lives… 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.
