World premiere

A life-changing true story

Emily Barclay (ABC’s Please Like Me) plays a young writer in Melbourne’s inner suburbs who quits her day job in a clothing store to find something new, something with a stronger sense of purpose. She lands a role in public relations for a family violence legal service. It’s the kind of job that can completely change the way you see the world – and it will.

A stunning and deeply moving Australian story, Lethal Indifference is based on real events and writer Anna Barnes’ own experiences. Told through a single actor, it is full of drama, rich humour and surprising revelations.

Lethal Indifference is many things at once: the tale of a young woman’s growing awareness; a meditation on society’s complicity in domestic violence; and a captivating, finally tragic, story of another woman’s fight to survive.

"There are two types of women in this world. Those that think family violence would never happen to them and those that know it could happen to anyone.” 

Duration 1hr 30mins (no interval)
