Melbourne Theatre Company presents
Declan Furber Gillick
MON 22 MAY — SAT 24 JUNE
Jacky is a smart, enterprising young blackfella working the gig economy in the big city. He skips neatly from office internships to cultural performances to sex work. Glenn is a white middle-aged record dealer, finalising a divorce and indulging in a fantasy that leads him straight to Jacky. When Jacky’s unemployable brother Keith rolls into town, Jacky’s carefully compartmentalised lives are set to collide.
Directed by Mark Wilson, Jacky follows up playwright Declan Futber Gillick’s multi-award-winning play Bighouse Dreaming. It’s a disarming and original play that asks what really matters.
