A Little Bit of Pain Never Hurt Anyone
This new work by Ballarat playwright Brendan McDougall is about the loss of innocence and what that does to kids struggling with what it means to be a woman, a man or a parent. Hopeful and tragic in equal measure, this play combines the weird worlds of Lally Katz with the theatrical inventiveness of Caryl Churchill. It will move anyone who has ever felt trapped by the way young Australian men and women are instructed on how to love themselves and others.
After a sold out run at Melbourne’s Butterfly Club, Periscope Productions brings its heartbreaking interrogation of the joy and terror of being both a child and a parent to Holden St. This two-decade love story captured in 55 minutes is not to be missed.
