World premiere

A battle of the sexless

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 the pen of Australian playwright and social commentator Van Badham comes this hilariously explicit new comedy. Banging Denmark is a swinging satire on the men who claim to understand the ‘female mind’ and the online culture that inspires them.

Directing Associate Jessica Arthur (Lethal Indifference) directs a fabulously funny cast including Amber McMahon (Accidental Death of an Anarchist), Megan Wilding (Blackie Blackie Brown) and Michelle Lim Davidson (Top Girls, ABC’s Utopia). Swipe right.
