It’s 1998. Deep in the Australian suburbs, we meet a fourteen-year-old girl who wants to be a witch, and an older man who claims he can teach her how.

Bridget Mackey’s The Exact Dimensions of Hell is an unflinching examination of the desires of young women, and a ritual to eviscerate the forces that seek to control them.

Starring electrifying performer Matilda Gibbs alongside internationally acclaimed theatre-maker Daniel Schlusser, The Exact Dimensions of Hell demands a new narrative of gender, agency, and power.
