Synopsis ( max 1500): “Know Your Enemy” is set in post-apocalyptic Perth, where aliens have invaded and depleted the earth's water supplies and population and no one knows why. The play starts after a small group of survivors have succeeded in a desperate and dangerous attempt to secure their freedom by capturing and negotiating with one of the aliens. Very quickly the room becomes filled with deceit and hidden agendas.
“Know Your Enemy” explores the duality of humanity and poses the question: when we are put under pressure are we really the best negotiators?
Exhilarating from start to finish, "Know Your Enemy" blurs the lines between theatre and film, leaving audiences on the edge of their seats throughout the entire performance.
Who really is the enemy here? Will hope survive against The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?
With a "Quentin Tarintino-like" style “Know Your Enemy” is an unforgettable, immersive experience for both inexperienced and seasoned theatre goers. A show that will bring our younger audiences back to the theatre.
"Know Your Enemy" is 15+. Best suited to intimate/medium black box theatres and audiences of 100-400.
Review Quotes (max 3 quotes): "Know Your Enemy is a mind-blowing work about survival, betrayal and fear... I left Know Your Enemy feeling shell-shocked and thrilled. Ultimately, that’s what you want from a show – to leave feeling affected. Know Your Enemy achieves this… and then some." - OUTinPerth
"Quentin Tarantino-like...I’d definitely attend this show over a new Netflix produced thriller any day." - FringeFeed
"The show feels like an episode of The Walking Dead with exposed secrets, drama and action, and definitely more substantial content... Although the content is intense and dramatic the performances given are much more a real life examination of the characters lives and their reactions to the setting...and the performances given by the cast is the real heart of the show. It’s fantastic to see local Perth actors who have mastered their trade." - Colosoul
