NSW, Illawarra Performing Arts Centre, 32 Burelli St, Wollongong 2500
Merrigong Theatre's Strangeways Ensemble, Wollongong's only professional theatre company, will be presenting their incredible new work, Trash Talk, at the end of January at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre. The show will then travel to the Riverside Theatres in Parramatta for another run 14-15 February. 
Strangeways Ensemble is made up of seven professional actors, all of whom are perceived to have intellectual disabilities. The ensemble create their own, brand new works bringing cutting-edge, Australian theatre to their audiences. 
Trash Talk is a brilliant mix of viedo projection, naturalistic theatre and more stylised physical theatre based on professional wrestling and set against the back-drop of bullying and discrimination in the workplace as experienced by the company's cast members and more broadly representing the greater Australian disabled community.
