Brought to you by shake & stir theatre co, Tequila Mockingbird explores themes of the perversion of justice, racial prejudice and the consequences of alcohol abuse within an Australian context.

After a woman is attacked in a remote Australian town, the racist underbelly rears its head as the community targets a young Indian doctor who had recently located to the area.
