SYNOPSIS

A dystopian dark-comedy that unravels trauma through sound, text and movement.

Three women engage with their girlhoods, idols and ideals in a dream-like and nostalgic narrative. THE GENTLE ART OF PUNISHMENT is for anyone who has ever had a crush on their therapist - or thinks that Drew Barrymore is under-appreciated in her dramatic roles.
