Friday 28 May from 9pm to 10pm

Five characters, five reasons to live, an odyssey towards death. A collage of memory, these characters jostle for existence in a theatrical phantasmagoria filled with dark humour, pathos and unsettling personal narrative.

Written and performed by Thomas Campbell, directed by Kate Gaul and produced by Siren Theatre Co.
