Back to Back Theatre stages MULTIPLE BAD THINGS at Geelong Arts Centre

by | Mar 26, 2024

Fresh from receiving the Venice Biennale’s 2024 Golden Lion Award for Lifetime Achievement in Theatre, Back to Back Theatre will premiere their next major new work MULTIPLE BAD THINGS from April 11 to 13 at Geelong Arts Centre.

Led by a stellar cast including Simon Laherty, Sarah Mainwaring, and Scott Price, MULTIPLE BAD THINGS marks a significant departure as the first major work by the award-winning company by new directors in 17 years.

Exploring the complexities of workplace dynamics, the upcoming production is set to navigate issues of civility, identity and power struggles against a backdrop of social upheaval.

Struggling to work together, three employees grapple with questions of inclusion, identity and intersectionality. Civility slips, bad behaviour escalates and reality distorts. The witching hour is here. Who will be the scapegoat?

MULTIPLE BAD THINGS is theatre. It is not real. But in a world where self-righteously indignant voices so often drown out the most disenfranchised and vulnerable, this theatre sometimes feels real.

Bookings can be made at geelongartscentre.org.au/whats-on/all-events/multiple-bad-things/, or by phoning the Box Office on 1300 251 200 between 9:00am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.

Geelong Arts Centre’s SEASON 2024 is proudly supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, Major Artistic Partner, Deakin University, and Innovation Partner, Costa Asset Management.
