Do people make a place, or place a people?
June’s been given a story to tell, and she’ll be touring the country to do it. What she doesn’t know is that soon enough there’ll be a story to tell about her.
With nothing but their good selves and the smell of an oily rag, Mahady and Kennett Lister set out to examine who we are, what we’ve become and what we owe to each other. In a style reminiscent of epic poetry, barbeque banter, and a theatre sports enthusiast on her third Red Bull, Up the Guts launches an unexpected assault on Australia’s calcified national mythology.
