By Oliver Mol

Award-winning author Oliver Mol’s debut is a true, funny and heartbreaking tale about a 10-month migraine, his recovery in Brisbane and job on the railway when he couldn’t do anything else.

Performed to music by Thomas Gray & Liam Ebbs, and to visuals by Kat Chellos, it is a story of hope, laughter, pain, relationships, drugs, failed orgies, mothers, fathers and love.

Part monologue, part performance art and part essay, Train Lord collapses genre and form to create a stunning portrait of pain, creativity and failure. Achingly authentic, funny and poignant, this is a breathtakingly honest study of humanity from one of Australia’s most exciting emerging writers.

Ultimately, this is a story about stuffing up and figuring it out and stuffing up and finding out you’re not alone.

By Little Eggs Collective

Symphonie Fantastique is a dark symphony made contemporary as a live theatre work exploring party-culture, psychedelia, and violence. Composed and devised by the company.

Symphonie Fantastique is a romantic epic, a monolithic work, a dark and perfumed symphony that revels in fascination, obsession, the dizzying highs and self-destructive lows of a pained artist and their drug induced hallucinations. Contemporised into a fifty-minute live work for the stage, Little Eggs will take this French Symphony from the 1800s and – through live music and movement – present a queer theatre work exploring party-culture, psychedelia, and violence. Composed and devised by the company.

Performance Warnings
