Banging Denmark

Date: 5 Jun 2019

Ish Madigan is a feminist academic writing a thesis on computer games.

Jake Newhouse is a full-time management consultant and part-time pickup artist. They’re not exactly best friends.

But when Jake’s latest crush – a brilliant Danish librarian – doesn’t respond to his usual seduction techniques, he knows he needs help. Jake asks Ish to coach him in feminist-friendly flirtation. He’ll pay.

And Ish needs the money.

So, what’s stopping her? Oh, you know, just ethics, morals and every fibre of her being.

From playwright and social commentator Van Badham comes this swinging satire on the men who claim to understand the ‘female mind’ and the online culture that inspires them.

Jessica Arthur (Lethal Indifference) directs.  Amber McMahon, Megan Wilding, Patrick Jhanur, TJ Power and Michelle Lim Davidson feature.
