About Home Economics

Real food, real mess and a sickly saturated design underpin our society’s complicated relationship with overindulgence of all kinds in this new staging of acclaimed theatre maker Declan Greene’s ‘Home Economics’.

This emerging team offers their take on the triptych of FLOUR, SUGAR, and TRUFFLES: a deliciously icky series of character studies. Ruthless, biting and critical but also extremely human and touching, these short works reveal the writer’s genuine fondness for his characters.

Directed by recent VCA graduate Stephanie Lee, this production will overwhelm the senses and challenge moral superiority, reminding us that humans are incredibly complex individuals.

The roll call for these pieces goes a little something like... A gay home economics teacher tempted by his 14-year-old student. A young girl bullied by two teen dreams because her teeth all rotted out from too much sugar. A sex worker paid to have dinner with a tantrum-throwing businessman.

In 2024 this work speaks to the complex interactions of power, privilege, wealth, consumption, and violence. It is ultimately in the constant balance between the uncomfortable and the enjoyable, where the audience will find themselves for this rollercoaster of a work.
