Wrecking Ball - Birmingham Rep
Dates & Times
There are currently no events listed for this show.
Description

A male photographer is taking a photograph of a female celebrity. She wants to be reinvented. She wants to be for real.

Wrecking Ball is about consent, power, authorship and putting words in other people's mouths. It's about the seductive power of make-believe. That's not a real pineapple she's holding, that's not his real cooler full of beers, those aren't her real thighs, those aren't his real feelings. But does the real really matter?

In this funny, surreal and unsettling new play “maverick company” (The Guardian) Action Hero ask who's really in control and how subtle abuses of power shape our relationships – with art, language and with each other.
