Theatre production King of Pigs sets to ignite conversation in the south-west about the behind the scenes dynamics of relationships.
Presented By Red Line Productions and Critical Stages Touring, the play is described as an "unflinching examination of masculinity, abuse, and power in the place we feel safest - our homes".
The show explores multiple relationships of people from different worlds sharing an identical space and violence against women.
It will be performed at the Lighthouse Theatre in Warrnambool on Tuesday at 7.30pm.
Cast member Kate Skinner said the show was a conversation starter.
"The thing I'm most excited about taking this on tour is the conversations that it's going to start for us as a society to start understanding that this isn't a problem that's happening to other people," she said. "It's happening everywhere."
Fellow cast member Anthony Yangoyan said the message he hoped stayed with audiences was the power of relationships.
"How everyone affects each other, especially intimate relationships," he said.
Cast member Sam Alhaje said it was a powerful play.
"It's going to show a lot of things that aren't spoken too loudly behind the scenes," he said.
