John Patrick Shanley's 'Savage in Limbo'

Be immersed in a full sensory experience, where the audience has a unique “fly on the wall” perspective of John Patrick Shanley's award-winning play 'Savage in Limbo' in the surrounds of The Local Taphouse, St Kilda.

The Eighties. Bronx, New York.
A dive bar called ‘Scales’, and five forgotten school friends who meet in an explosive tale of forgotten souls.

Savage in Limbo tells the story of five high school misfits that serendipitously meet whilst trying to find themselves; they find each other.

Denise Savage, a frustrated and perennial loner, feels that losing her virginity is the only way to achieve the change she yearns.

Linda Rotunda, a hot headed overripe Italian, has been blindsided by the man that she loves, Tony, who is leaving her to pursue “ugly girls,” and who himself has found a thirst for knowledge.

April, a failed nun and bar fly, who’s hard life has led her to this moment. And Murk, her confidant and the unintentional gatekeeper of this miserable bunch as the owner of ‘Scales’, who himself is lost in the world of his own misfortune.

To make a change in their mundane lives and to escape Limbo, they must hash it out.

From the same writer that brought you ‘Moonstruck’, ‘Doubt’ and ‘Danny and the Deep Blue Sea’.
All Sorts Productions brings you ‘Savage in Limbo’.
