17 Feb 2018 to 10 Mar 2018

Sydney Theatre Company Presents
By Anna Barnes

World premiere

A true story

A young writer in Melbourne’s inner suburbs quits her day job in a clothing store to find something new, something with a stronger sense of purpose. She lands a role in public relations for a family violence legal service. It’s the kind of job that can completely change the way you see the world – and it will.

Writer Anna Barnes won STC’s Patrick White Playwrights’ Award in 2012. Her new play, Lethal Indifference, is based on real events and her own experiences. The stunning tale is told through a single actor, Emily Barclay (ABC’s Please Like Me), who brings to life a series of overlapping and interrelated chapters, full of drama, rich humour and deeply moving revelations.

Lethal Indifference is many things at once: the tale of a young woman’s growing awareness; a meditation on society’s complicity in domestic violence; and a captivating, finally tragic, story of another woman’s fight to survive.

"There are two types of women in this world. Those that think family violence would never happen to them and those that know it could happen to anyone.”
