Tequila Mockingbird

TEQUILA MOCKINGBIRD

Promotional (2013)

Presented By shake & stir theatre co and QPAC

The creative powerhouse behind the smash hit, sell out productions Animal Farm and 1984, return in 2013 with a new Australian play.

Directed by Michael Futcher and featuring a cast of some of Queensland’s finest actors, Tequila Mockingbird visits themes of racial prejudice, the perversion of justice and the consequences of alcohol abuse, all in a uniquely Australian context.

After a woman is attacked in a remote Australian town, the racist underbelly rears its head as the community targets a young Indian Doctor who has recently relocated to the area. Only one local man possesses the strength to uncover the truth and defend the accused in the ultimate fight for what’s right but first, he must take care of other matters, a little closer to home.

Don’t miss this bold, brave new work examining a darker side of Australian culture lurking just below the surface.
