King of Pigs

Date: 17 Jul 2018

One Woman. Four Men. She could be with any one of them. 

At 22, on a date on the Gold Coast.

At 31, moving into an apartment in Albert Park.

Or at 40, happily married with a nine-year-old son living in Campsie.

Four very different worlds share an identical space; our homes.

A direct response to the nature of power and the way men licence themselves to abuse it, Steve Rodgers’ drama provides us with glimpses into a panoramic lie. It’s a lie every man tells himself privately but every woman lives with publicly.

Ella Scott-Lynch, Christian Byers, Ashley Hawkes, Mick Bani and Kire Tosevski feature. Blazey Best directs.
