‘‘Have you ever encountered a woman you don’t inflate?”

The European premiere of Van Badham’s acclaimed black comedy Banging Denmark opens at the multi-award-winning Finborough Theatre for a four-week limited season on Tuesday, 16 April 2024. Performances will run between April 16th – May 11th.

A biting and hilarious new “rom-com” by one of Australia’s leading social commentators (and former Literary Manager of the Finborough Theatre), Van Badham. Feisty feminist academic Ishtar is so broke she’s living in the photocopy room, following a hefty out-of-court settlement to a toxic male ‘troll’. All she has left is her pride.

Management consultant Jake is high on life, with a lucrative side gig as a misogynist podcaster and pick-up artist. Until his latest crush – gorgeous Danish librarian Anne – fails to fall for his usual ‘game’.

Undeterred, he makes Ishtar a cash offer she surely can’t refuse to advise him how best to infiltrate Anne’s no-nonsense feminist mind.

But for Ish to accept such a deal from Jake – of all people – she would be selling her soul. Wouldn’t she?

This explicit and badly behaved satire of modern manners sees Ish, Jake, their friends and a stranger navigate the battle-of-the-sexes (and the sexless).

No one will emerge unscathed…

Sydney Theatre Company’s acclaimed 2019 production at the Sydney Opera House Studio was shortlisted for the 2020 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards Nick Enright Prize for Playwriting.
