Train Lord – On Demand

Venue Online
Dates 08 October - 24 October 2021
Category Riverside Theatres Digital – On Demand

Riverside Theatres Digital presents
Binge the Fringe
in association with The Sydney Fringe

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.
