Following Melbourne Theatre Company’s critically acclaimed Australian premiere season, Belvoir is thrilled to present the Sydney premiere of Hannah Moscovitch’s Sexual Misconduct of the Middle Classes, an incisive #MeToo-era take on the archetypal student-teacher romance, from 2nd June to 10th July 2022

Jon is an award-winning writer, but it doesn’t seem to have made him happy. His third marriage is going about as well as his first two, and his university job is mainly teaching ‘creative writing’ to the self-absorbed. But this year there’s one student who seems to be worth his attention.

Annie’s smart, spontaneous, and knows Jon’s work backwards. In her bright red coat she certainly stands out – it feels like their affair was written in the stars.

One day the fires will die down. But who gets to write their history? What was going on, exactly?

This gripping, 80-minute piece of sharp new writing by acclaimed Canadian playwright, Hannah Moscovitch (East of Berlin, Little One, This is War, Bunny, What a Young Wife Ought to Know, and Old Stock) takes a scenario you think you know, but asks – who gets to tell the story?

Directed by Petra Kalive (MTC’s The Lifespan of a Fact and Pandora), this timely exploration of power, truth and desire is a captivating drama of contemporary gender politics starring Dan Spielman (The Blind Giant is Dancing and ABC’s The Code) and Izabella Yena (Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears).

Prices: Full price from $70, Seniors from $60, Concession from $50, 30-Down from $48, Student Saver from $35

Sexual Misconduct of the Middle Classes is produced by Melbourne Theatre Company and commissioned by Tarragon Theatre, Toronto, Canada.
