Media and it’s collateral damage explored in this new Australian play
Writer Chris Bryant and actor Chloe Bayliss join stages to unpack the world of media and it’s effects on the audiences it entices.
An obsessive Paula Abdul fan, June, auditions for American Idol in an attempt to impress her hero. A young girl named Sam enters a relationship with her mechanic, Anthony, and cultivates a dangerous obsession with brutally confronting his wife, Carol. Carol, meanwhile, has reoccurring dreams in which a ghostly Jon Benét Ramsey visits her, prophesying about the future.
Equally disturbing and humorous, Home Invasion explores celebrity infatuation and our culture’s obsession with the relentless mediatisation of violent acts, weaving together three incidents from real life.
