Australian Premiere

It’s the forgotten concrete outskirts of New Jersey, all crumbling overpasses and shuttered discount stores. A derelict bus stop at night littered with cigarette butts and broken beer bottles. Darja, a sharp-tongued Polish immigrant, struggles to get by as a cleaner for the more fortunate. The hope of a better life in America is turning out to be impossible.

A critical sensation off-Broadway, Ironbound is a play about the constant battle to eke out a modest existence as a woman at the bottom of the heap. In a series of scenes across the span of thirty years, it’s a story of fitful joy, dark humour and constant struggle underneath the sprawling highways of the Garden State. 

Please note that due to the arrangement of the theatre and the intimacy of the space, there is a lockout policy in place on all shows at KXT. Latecomers are not permitted to enter during the performance and there are no refunds/exchanges with regards to latecomers.
