The Disability Trust’s Strangeways Theatre Group, which is run in partnership with Merrigong Theatre Company is performing Trash Talk from Friday February 14th to Saturday February 15th at Riverside Theatre Parramatta.
Returning to our stage for the first time since their huge success with 2017’s The Outside Man, Merrigong Theatre Company’s Strangeways Ensemble, a permanent ensemble of seven professional actors perceived to have intellectual disability, brings us their stunning new work.
Set in a fictional workplace — the recycling depot of an Australian Disability Enterprise (ADE) — Trash Talk draws inspiration from the real-life 2018 review of award wages for people working in such commercial businesses, and the personal impact that it had on members of the cast.
With a hugely entertaining blend of humour, physical theatre and video projection, Trash Talk is framed within the hyper-reality of a professional wrestling tournament. With its gladiatorial approach to human rights and our universal desire for respect and dignity, the show reaffirms the right to work as fundamental to human existence.
