Contemporary and experimental theatre company The Danger Ensemble return to Theatre Works following their hugely divisive 2018 production The Hamlet Apocalypse.

Inspired by The Scarlett Letter, a 17th century puritan romance, Let Men Tremble throws colonial concepts of sin, sex and the role of women in society into a modern day crucible.

Lead by award-winning Director/Designer Steven Mitchell Wright the cast of thirteen take a piece of seminal American literature and transform it into cuttingly-contemporary Australian theatre.

Let Men Tremble is a rebellion. A revolt. A clarion call. It is a battle cry against the patriarchy, the church and theatre itself. It is a liturgical slut drop dripping with song, dance and theatrical madness. Get whet.
