FREE TIX - Stark and Dormy

FREE TIX - Stark and DormyIn a small town, trouble is brewing...

The latest creation by local award-winning outfit Bunk Puppets, Stark and Dormy is the ultimate dark comedy adventure featuring puppetry, sketch comedy, and unabashedly cool Lo-Fi effects.

Weaving together the lives of several outlandish characters living in a seaside town, Stark and Dormy meshes a struggling theme park owner with a dark secret, a teenage girl losing touch with her father, a captive ape plotting escape, a vain restaurateur desperate to be on the culinary cutting edge... and a hungry alien creature just about to crash-land.

Part Sci-Fi spoof and part social satire, master storytellers Bunk Puppets use a blend of puppetry and sketch comedy to create an entertaining universe steeped in imagination and creativity, all duly lacquered with a good dose of dark wit.

Based in Melbourne, Australia, Bunk Puppets are a multi-award winning company creating cutting edge shadow puppet theatre. Running since 2010, they have traversed the globe and built an outstanding international reputation with their absurdist visual stories.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street | TEG Life Like Company

This show features a great cast in an unambitious production of a classic musical in an awful theatre.

The Return of Ulysses | Pinchgut Opera

Pinchgut Opera is a national treasure. This wonderful opera is hardly known in Australia, and to have it so completely brought to life is a gift of enormous proportions.

Gruesome Playground Injuries | Tasmanian Theatre Company

The play zigzags between moments of real pathos, laughter, the farther reaches of psychological motivation and plain old-fashioned gross-out slapstick.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street | TEG Life Like Company

This is without question another ‘born to play’ role for one of this country’s finest performers and genuinely leaves previously versions trailing somewhere far behind.
