Sexual Misconduct of the Middle Classes
Melbourne Theatre Company presents
Sexual Misconduct of the Middle Classes

6 Mar 2021 to 1 Apr 2021

 

Award-winning Canadian playwright Hannah Moscovitch has set the international theatre scene alight with her fiery wit and incisive ability to tackle complex subjects with humour and intelligence. In this Australian premiere production, Dan Spielman (Photograph 51) and Izabella Yena (Home, I'm Darling) embody Moscovitch's whipsmart #MeToo-era take on the archetypal student–teacher romance.

Jon is a prize-winning novelist who wants more out of life. His third marriage is going about as well as his first two, and he’s stuck at university teaching creative writing to lazy undergraduates. He’s a good teacher, but believes there’s really only one student worth his time.

Annie is clever, imaginative, and a huge fan of Jon's work. One afternoon, Jon catches himself admiring Annie in her red coat, and very soon it feels like their affair was destined from the start. But when the embers have cooled and the affair is over, who will control their narrative?

Helmed by MTC Associate Director Petra Kalive (Hungry Ghosts), this captivating drama is a timely exploration of power, truth and desire.

Sexual Misconduct of the Middle Classes was commissioned by Tarragon Theatre, Toronto, Canada.
