WORLD PREMIERE

no matter the cost, no matter the consequence.

'Well meaning, twenty-something Millie comes home from work one day to discover her old childhood friend Annie bruised and bloody on her doorstep. Millie picks her up, dusts her off and puts her in the bath. Lying in bed together, the two reminisce on a childhood that occurred a lifetime ago and recall an old promise to care for one other ‘no matter the cost, no matter the consequence.’ As Annie sleeps, Millie vows to honour her friend in the one way that seems fair; revenge.'

Set in the outskirts of metropolitan Melbourne, kerosene is a relentless and unsympathetic character study exploring the ways in which society perceives and trivialises acts of female violence. It is a homage to the blind loyalty that accompanies lifelong friendships and the realities of what it means to grow up young, quiet and forgotten in modern day Australia.
