Presented by The Last Great Hunt ·
Our second work in The Last Great Hunt’s 2019 Perth season is Perpetual Wake, written by Jeffrey Jay Fowler and Gita Bezard and directed by Gita Bezard.
Fiona West has written a stunning debut novel: Perpetual Wake. When career maker and breaker Paul Creel reviews the manuscript, he finds his life represented inshocking detail. He finally feels understood.
The impressed Creel invites West for a casual ‘wine and chat’ two days before his review is to be published. But when they meet he discovers the book he considered an elegant insight into the human mind, was intended as a hysterical satire! Creel leaves the meeting determined to ensure that West’s book will be buried before the year is out. But West is a tougher rival than he expects and so a war begins.
From Australia’s hottest theatrical outfit: The Last Great Hunt, comes Perpetual Wake, surreal dark comedy about the depths people sink in order to conceal their shame.
