about

"why do you want to be friends with these people? You don’t even like them. And they certainly don’t like you."

 

After surviving a nasty near-death experience, a group of close friends wipe the slate clean and embrace a tree-change, living a sustainable life in the country. But nature isn’t always so welcoming, and when the friends are faced with the pressing task of killing a young cow, a chain reaction begins that will see them confront some ugly and shocking truths.

 

Commissioned and premiered by the Melbourne Theatre Company in 2013, this is a cutting, modern day satire that tears our notions of morality to shreds with a hilarious rant on urban culture, organic lifestyles and infidelity.
