Hoax, A

Rick Viede

When social worker Ant discovers Currah, a young  Indigenous girl with a horrific past, he’s certain he’s found the way to make a difference. When literary-agent-extraordinaire Ronnie Lowe discovers Currah, she's certain she’s found marketing gold. Now Currah’s got the world at her feet, an army of fans and isn’t returning any of Ant’s calls. Finding himself flung aside, Ant will do anything to be with her in the spotlight.

Inspired by the recent spate of fabricated “misery memoirs”, A Hoax is a vicious satire on the politics of identity, modern celebrity and the peddling of abuse culture.
