Safety Switch


By Rowan Freeman
Directed by Eden Falk

On the evening of April 2nd 2012, two actors were arrested outside a theatre in Melbourne.

Believing they were planning a terrorist act, possibly due to the ethnicity of one of the actors — or the props they were carrying — the police interrogated them over the course of the night.

Based on true events, Safety Switch is a dark re-imagining of what could have happened, written for a city reeling in the wake of paranoia — where anyone is a threat.

with Warwick Allsopp, Rowan Freeman, Fiona Pepper and Mansoor Noor.

Season: 13–24 May
