2022 Theatre Season presented by Townsville City Council

Award winning theatre makers Shock Therapy Productions proudly present Undertow, an honest and powerful look at the hidden forces beneath the surface that move us and determine the choices we make and the actions we take.

Centering around a high school community, the show follows three central characters, Jesse, Connor and Phil, as they each struggle to cope with the pressures of life while trying to manage relationships with the people close to them.

Funny, moving, poignant and dynamic, Undertow is a two-actor tour de force of storytelling. Shock Therapy draws on a range of film conventions and physical theatre techniques to push their signature style in a new direction, blurring the line between different realities. The result is theatre that is fluid and inventive, sweeping you up as the story pulls you deeper.
