Betty is a Butcher

Date: 30 Mar 2021

Written and performed by Thomas Campbell, Betty is a Butcher offers five characters, five reasons to live, an odyssey towards death. 

A collage of memory, these characters jostle for existence in a theatrical phantasmagoria, Betty is a Butcher is a black comedy that captures the fragility and savagery of relationships, the need for love and the power of family. In dramatising the act of waiting and capturing the emptiness of communication.

Directed by Kate Gaul, Betty is a Butcher is filled with dark humour, pathos and unsettling personal narrative.
