The Feather in the Web

Book tickets

By Nick Coyle

Kimberly lives a modest life. When she's not steering cars into oncoming traffic, she mostly enjoys the quieter things - like public masturbation and emotional terrorism. Adrift in a bland, grey world much like ours - of after-work office-drinks, team-building exercises, and never-ending Netflix recommendations - Kimberly wants nothing more than to watch it all burn. Until disaster strikes. She falls in love. And finally encounters a force as terrible and destructive as herself.
From cult comic sensation Nick Coyle (The Queen of Wolves, ABC's Sarah's Channel), The Feather In The Web is a lacerating satire of mainstream culture – that revels in all the magnificent, awful parts of ourselves we've learned to squish right down.

"Nick Coyle leads you into a mad tunnel of laughs, that has jokes, slapstick, silliness and satire... Then he hits you where it hurts"
— Sydney Morning Herald
"Wickedly funny... An unlikely celebration of those who exist outside the box."
— Time Out
