A dark comedy about friendship, empowerment and smashing the patriarchy.
Frankie and Bec have been best friends for years.
When Bec finally ends a toxic relationship they’re forced to confront their greatest challenge yet… where to hide a body.
Written by Megan Scolyer-Gray and directed by Maya Britbart Ellazam, Teeth and Tonic is a cutting commentary on the treatment of women and the misogyny that permeates our society. An exciting exploration of the ways our connections shape us, this queer, feminist play asks us to think critically about power structures and the necessity of positive relationships in driving growth. It also has a character who is a glass of orange juice! Who says serious stuff can’t also be silly?
“For anyone craving an audacious response to odious behaviour, Teeth and Tonic is the thing to see.” – Olivia Arcaro, ArtsHub
