RECENT incidents involved punches during football matches and in the northern suburbs has prompted the Actors Hub to stage the One Punch Wonder production.

The play, originally staged during the Fringe World Festival, puts the element of toxic masculinity under the microscope.

“This issue of one punch is such a male-dominated problem but we need to show the mothers and sisters talking about it from their perspectives,” director Amanda Crewes said.

Ms Crewes said she wanted to share the enormity of the issue – which not only affected the victim and the perpetrator but the lives of family members and the community too – by starting a conversation around the need for cultural change in Australia.

Organisers said recent punch incidents, including during the Eagles AFL match, prompted them to put on a repeat performance from 6pm on Tuesday, August 14 at the Actors’ Hub Studios, 129 Kensington Street, East Perth.
