IN THE MENS
A jockey addicted to cheesecake, an ambitious stockbroker falling asleep on Geelong Rd in the name of a sea-change, a barber still caught in white 1950s Australia, and a stressed bank trainee breaking up with his fiancee over tongue kisses and pork chops…
Wistful, poignant, startling, eccentric and hilarious, In The Mens is both comic riot and thorough examination of generations of the Australian male psyche.
After numerous festival appearances in America and England, award-winning playwright Kieran Carroll (Sons of Sun, The Giraffe’s Uncle) brings his pocket comedy/drama series, In The Mens, back onto home turf.
‘It will lead you down the road of excess to the palace of hilarity.’
– Cameron Woodhead, The Age
‘Covers the familiar enough realms of Australian male despair but with such authority and economy it’s as if the topic’s been found anew.’ – Owen Richardson, The Age
