Let Men Tremble

Let Men Tremble

Get whet.

Contemporary and experimental theatre company The Danger Ensemble return to Theatre Works this August following their hugely divisive 2018 production, The Hamlet Apocalypse. A part of the Theatre Works 2019 Chapter Two Season, Let Men Tremble promises to once again polarise and challenge.

Inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne's 1850 historical novel The Scarlet Letter about a 17th century puritan romance, Let Men Tremble hurls colonial concepts of sin, sex, and the role of women in society into a modern day crucible. A liturgical slut drop dripping with song, dance, and theatrical madness, Let Men Tremble is a rebellion. A revolt. A clarion call. It is a battle cry against the patriarchy, the church, and theatre itself.

Lead by award-winning Director/Designer Steven Mitchell Wright, The Danger Ensemble invites Melbourne audiences to watch as a cast of thirteen take a piece of seminal American literature and transform it into cuttingly-contemporary Australian theatre.

The Danger Ensemble are an award-winning experimental theatre company. Pursuing an understanding of contemporary form and audiences, their work has stretched the gamut from reinvented classics Macbeth and The Wizard of Oz, to live-art experiments We Will Not Kiss Touch Frighten You in the Dark and CALIGULA, to punk-cabaret musical Who Killed Amanda Palmer and new works Loco Maricon Amor and The Hamlet Apocalypse.
