THE KINGS COLLECTIVE PRESENTS
BY KATE TEMPEST
1 – 9th December
The Factory Theatre, 105 Victoria Rd
The Kings Collective is a Sydney-based ensemble dedicated to creating a space for change within the Australian arts landscape by challenging audiences in content, form and aesthetic and providing opportunities for artists. Since its inception in 2014, The Collective has produced eight plays and have created opportunities for over sixty young artists.
This December, The Kings Collective are proud to present the Australian premiere of Wasted by ground-breaking spoken-word artist Kate Tempest.
Wasted is the first play from this critically acclaimed voice of a generation, blending traditional theatre with spoken-word rhythm in an honest and refreshing way. Set in modern day London, Tempest’s play speaks to a generation of young people struggling to find their feet in a busy and unrelenting world. They are confronted with the reality of wasting your potential, wasting your life and getting wasted.
The Kings Collective will be partnering with Word Travels, the company behind the Australian Poetry Slam, to present a spoken-word showcase on selected nights of the production. This showcase will feature local spoken-word artists from the Sydney area.
Directed by Elsie Edgerton-Till (The Plant – The Ensemble Theatre, Phone A Friend – New Zealand Playhouse), Wasted brings together an exciting young cast: Jack Crumlin, Eliza Scott and David Harrison and features the innovative production design of Tyler Ray Hawkins.
This Australian Premiere is not to be missed. Tickets are strictly limited.
