John Safran

As heard on triple j’s Sunday Night Safran


John Safran returns to Sydney this October for a special encore season of his hit live show Murder In Mississippi — the true story of how he met a white supremacist, befriended his black killer and wrote a book.

John reads from his best-selling book, shares tales of his escapades from the Deep South and screens never before-seen footage from his mission.

As Australia’s peerless exponent of gonzo film-making and because he is John Safran, he jumped on a plane, lived in Jackson, Mississippi for the best part of six months, plunged himself into FBI files, earned a killer’s trust and wrote a true crime novel. Live on stage, John will take you deeper into his time in the South, telling the story on stage with film and photography from his six month immersion below the Mason Dixon.

Murder In Mississippi is a tale of race, poverty, incarceration and the cultural fault lines that have defined the South since they found themselves on the losing side of the civil war.

Tickets will sell fast. Don’t miss out on this special encore literary event.
