Privilege: The Musical!

Privilege: The Musical! is a glittering, soul searching look at power and inequality, the most ambitious show to date from award-winning theatre maker Louise White.

Starring a gender bending, intersectional, fire-cracking cast of Jade O’Connor, Venus Patel, Stephen Quinn, & Ashley Xie, with musical composition from Matt Regan and cello performance by Lioba Petrie, audiences can expect expect gaslighting show tunes, snowflake earnestness, and theatre tropes aplenty when the piece premieres with performances on Friday 4th and Saturday 5th of March at Mermaid Arts Centre.
