LOCATION Stirling Lawns outside of the Coventry Library - 63 Mt Barker Road, Stirling / Piccaillyangga

ALWAYS WAS, ALWAYS WILL BE In this, our third year, the Stirling Fringe team continue the journey of understanding the Spirit of Place. We respect the traditional custodians, the Kaurna people whose land we gather on in Stirling, and acknowledge the area that was a crossover place between the Kaurna and Peramangk country. Where Stirling sits today was a significant gathering place and part of Piccaillyangga - the place of the two eyebrows. We know this place is ancient and that the living spirit of the first peoples still breathes here today.

Tash York: Badass

Werewolves

CABARET Whether it’s wielding a bat to the patriarchy, challenging life’s norms, or just cussing like a sailor, Tash York is on a journey to find her inner Badass, but that can be hard when you’re hungover AF, covered in nuggets & having a panic attack. Star of fringe hit “Adulting”, York and her band bring you parodied songs, improvised raps, hilarious true stories and a lot of heart.

INTERACTIVE

“A phenomenal performer - charismatic and courageous” – T H E AT R E P E O P L E

This immersive role-playing game returns to Stirling Fringe after sell out seasons at Adelaide and Edinburgh Fringe last year. As night falls on the town of Millers Hollow, there’s trouble afoot and Werewolves are stalking the innocent villagers. As each morning breaks, the death toll rises and it’s up to the villagers to try and find the Werewolves lurking in plain sight among them. A game of accusation, bluffing, second guessing and assassination.

“York is completely endearing, engaging and believable” – U P S I D E N E W S
