He tries his best with girls. He tries his best with mates. But for all his efforts, things just don’t seem to be going right. So he’s making a change. Something’s triggered him to stand up for himself. They made him feel small but with just a few clicks he’ll become the biggest thing on the internet. But does he have the balls to go through with it?
Fueled by rejection, inspired by violent media and facilitated by the internet, BALLISTIC explores how a series of unremarkable events can create a killer, begging the question ‘can atrocities such as this be avoided?’.
Mark Conway stars in this premiere production, co-directed Anna Marsland and author Alex Packer. It’s designed by Frances Roughton, with lighting by Peter Thomas, and produced by Euan Borland for Mini Mall Theatre.
