‘…boldly conceived and strikingly imaginative’ The Australian

In a post-apocalyptic setting, former thespian Bibsby has been tasked with digging graves for countless dead and maintaining the city’s crumbling graveyard.

Bibsby must also care for Garm and Derb: two vexing fools who have literally grown from the grave of their mother and are stuck in the ground. Garm and Derb engage in humourous banter, tell tales, discuss the art of performing, and demand that miserable Bibsby partake in their storytelling.

Rainbow Man explores the many functions that stories have in people’s lives, particularly at grim times, and the role that fiction plays in the construction of people’s realities.
