'MORAL PANIC' EXAMINES WHERE OUR INTEREST IN THE DARK ARTS LEAD



Characters, Andy and Evie have met in the forest to hex Evie's uncle. Armed with their tools (a cup of menstrual blood and a digital ouija board) they have been talking to a dead witch online - who in return for this spell has asked for a big favour in return.

The story is further complicated by Evie's weird aunt and Sue-Anne, the Mayor's daughter, who come to create a coven and somehow take the story down into a surreal, dream-logic underworld, where they must come to speak a different language and must listen to the crone and the crow.

Diving into a different world with an entirely different reality, Moral Panic is a play that examines what we know about these other worlds and unleashes terrifying new realities that deal with queerness and womanhood.

An unsettling hallucination, an occult thriller, and a very dark comedy, this play comes from the award-winning team behind Ground Control and asks some big questions like - how do we tear down the monuments of masculinity?

Written by Rachel Perks, and Directed by Bridget Balodis, see the unique Moral Panic this November!
