Up north, Sydney Festival is bringing back critically acclaimed British play Seven Methods of Killing Kylie Jenner for an East Coast tour. Jasmine Lee-Jones’ powerful play which debuted in London in 2019 explores many hard-hitting topics like cultural appropriation, capitalist exploitation, online culture and friendship in a sharp and witty stage production.
Now the play is coming to Australia in 2022, travelling to Parramatta’s Riverside Theatre, Darlinghurst Theatre’s Eternity Playhouse as a part of the Sydney Festival program and Brisbane’s La Boite before finally landing in Melbourne’s Malthouse Theatre in July next year.
Seven Methods of Killing Kylie Jenner
Right from gifs, memes and emojis to exploring the politics behind Social Media activism — the powerful and relevant play combines several millennial staples on stage. Backed by a production team of several women of colour, the show brings together a diverse and vibrant pool of actors, writers and designers.
The play is co-directed by Shari Sebbens who has recently been appointed the Sydney Theatre Company Resident Director.
It stars inter-disciplinary artist Moreblessing Maturure (Afro Sistahs, Seachange)
