Banging Denmark

Banging Denmark


20 - 30 Sep | 1 hour 40 minutes New Theatre

From the pen of Van Badham, one of Australia's leading social commentators, comes a biting rom-com that deep-dives into the world of internet dating with a fiercely feminist sensibility.

Aussie Jake Newhouse is a management consultant with a side hack as a toxic male podcaster. He also fancies himself as a pick-up artist.

His latest crush, a brilliant and beautiful Danish librarian, isn’t buying his usual lines, so he enlists the help of academic Ish Madigan to give him tips on flirtation.

He’s offering to pay and she’s broke enough to accept, despite their fraught relationship. But for Ish, the project feels like a betrayal of the sisterhood!

How Ish, Jake, their friends and an online stranger navigate the complexities of love, sex and dating in the 21st century lies at the heart of Van Badham’s hilarious yet touching social satire.
