EYES WIDE WOKE
COMING SOON FOR MIDSUMMA FESTIVAL 2020
A storm is brewing but the table is set, the friends are familar and the stories of everyday triumphs are cocked and ready to go. A group of old friends throw what should be an innocuous dinner party, until the host decides to entertain a guest of dishonour. She invites a sex worker to the dinner under the guise of pushing the boundaries of her friends. The new guest’s presence prompts a pissing contest over who is the most unfazed and the party unravels into a pageant of moral posturing. Until, underneath the howls of wind, whispers of malicious intent spread through the circle of friends, causing them to scrutinise her suspicious motives. The power blacks out. The elevator is down. With no way to leave, the web of lies comes undone and now a flavourless curry is the least of their worries.
Eyes Wide Woke debuts next year for Midsumma Festival.
