All American Scream

Welcome to The Average Joe Show, a good ol’ fashioned daytime sitcom with zinging one-liners and loveable characters all working hard on that freedom freeway named the pursuit of happiness.
Except that recently the world has pursued a terrifying, globalising and memetic transformation into something very grey indeed.

Joe’s life goes off the rails in existential crisis when the show reaches its happy conclusion and all that is left is an ugly land filled with cybernetic post-humans and trump-like revisionists, that reveal the inherent absurdity of all he held dear.

All American Scream is a genre-bending and off kilter, mind-warping piece with a pitch black sense of humour; deploying radical 4th wall-breaking sensibilities and surrealist costume as well as experimental live music and offbeat dramatics to tell a thought provoking story about the state of the world today in a cultural-analytical fashion. It’s heaps of fun.

Recommended Age: 12+

Pugilist Specialist

Four highly trained US Marines are assigned a top secret mission to eliminate a high profile Middle Eastern leader.

Triple Fringe First winning, Pugilist Specialist won every major award at the Edinburgh Festival with this soaring and timely play dissecting the American military’s hunt for evil in foreign lands.

A darkly humorous, punch in the guts play.

Remarkable and riveting. It’s hard to imagine more brilliant or arresting new writing Daily Telegraph

A masterpiece. A vivid and timely play Time Out
