You’re invited to Jim & Barb’s golden wedding anniversary!

After 50 years of marriage, these Baby Boomers from Balwyn annoy one another so much… they literally want to kill each other. Meanwhile, Greta Thunberg is on the TV telling them that the world is on fire and it’s all their fault.

Their comedic dissent into the disappointing abyss of unfulfilled dreams and a mounting fear of ‘what’s outside’ is layered with precision timing, nonsensical absurdity and deadpan delivery.

Multi award-winning creators of Die Roten Punkte, Clare Bartholomew and Daniel Tobias are back with a brand new murderously funny physical farce.

Think Beckett meets Wallace and Grommit.

Since 2006, Clare Bartholomew and Daniel Tobias have been touring their award-winning, irreverent brand of theatre and comedy-cabaret to North America, Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. Together they’ve been nominated for thirteen Greenroom Awards, winning 3 of them, and nominated for a Time Out & Soho Theatre Award and a Total Theatre Award in Edinburgh.

Praise for previous work:

★★★★ ‘Intensely funny…a class act!’ The Age

‘The most important element of all is exceptional: the performers.’ The Courier, South Carolina, USA

‘Inspired, brilliantly executed lunacy.’ The Gazette, Montreal

Thursday 18 February, 7.30pm AEDT (one show only!)

Your Zoom registration link to access the live-streamed performance will be included in a pre-event email, sent from one day before the event.
