HEADLOCK

Set in a wrestling ring, KAGE's critically acclaimed and multi-award winning production HEADLOCK, is the story of 3 brothers - tonight, one of them is spending his first night in prison.

In HEADLOCK the audience is invited to spend the first 24 hours in prison with Shane - a young offender who has been picked up on a minor misdemeanor. Shane has never been locked up before and his youthful bravado offers little comfort or protection on the inside.

HEADLOCK surprises, thrills, shocks and irritates. It is an exploration of maleness and mateship, displaying innocence, beauty and horror… a powerful work of physical theatre.
— Hilary Crampton, The Age 2006
