“ingenious… This is a production with a clear vision and a very cohesive approach to its directorial style. This allows the audience to focus entirely on the very insightful social and political commentary infused in this delightful show.” Stage Whispers

MUST, in association with Bloomshed, creates a world-class pyramid scheme.

A live theatrical seminar for the savvy entrepreneur, We’re Banking on it! is the only show that promises to double your investment.* Our team of highly trained business professionals are ready to show you all the tricks of the trade. Forging signatures. Price gouging. Bribing your local council to get around those pesky zoning laws. No matter what it is, our expert business analysts promise you won’t leave empty handed. In fact, we’re banking on it.

Ten years after the MUST production that launched the Bloomshed ensemble, these award winning theatre companies collaborate again on a reprised corruption of Gogol’s The Government Inspector.

Sure, the future’s uncertain. But after this, you’ll be so rich that it won’t matter.


“MUST continues to support students and create astonishing and powerful work that consistently punches way above its weight and acts as an incubator for some of our most important emerging theatre artists.”  – Australian Arts Review, 2022

“Melbourne’s indie theatre scene at its inventive best.” Cameron Woodhead, The Age on Animal Farm

“The most innovative, bold, daring and creative theatre makers around.” Myron My, My Melbourne Arts on A Dodgeball Named Desire
