Baby Plays

Baby Plays 2 (with Ribbon).jpg

A mini season of brand new works-in-progress, taking their first steps with an audience. Two new plays will get a week of development, and the artists will share what they’ve discovered at the end of the week with readings, performance snippets and lively discussion.

For just a gold coin donation, welcome a new play into the world!

Our 2019 Baby Plays are…

Dead Gorgeous

What could possibly be funny about murder? Madness of Two will figure out or die trying!

Featuring some of Adelaide's best young blood, Dead Gorgeous: A True Crime Clown Show uses a unique blend of satire, clowning and irreverent introspection to ask "Why are we so obsessed with true crime? Why don't we do anything to stop these crimes from happening? How do you wash fake blood out of your costume?"

We swear, it's in good taste!
