Last Days of Mankind Winner 2004 Melbourne Fringe – Best Actor / Best Original Sound. The Last Days of Mankind is Karl Kraus’ (1874 –1936) magnum opus, an Expressionist play that foreshadows the documentary theatre of Brecht. Kraus was the Michael Moore of his era, and the superb Justus Neumann plays every role in this contemporary adaptation. The pacifist message of this piece is powerfully pertinent to audiences experiencing the War on Terror. “Justus Neumann is an artist of the highest order. He brings a unique approach to the theatre that enriches the cultural landscape and the audiences that he performs to.” BARRIE KOSKY Feb Sat 25th – March Mon 6th at 5.30pm. $16 (Conc $12)

Sam Simmons’ Tales From The Erotic Cat It’s like David Lynch shaking hands with Elvis at a cocktail party where Jim Henson has spiked the punch... Diving into the mundane and the absurd, Sam Simmons performs an hour of music and songs, animated stories, stand-up, and dancing badly with intent... Simmons is one of the most daring unconventional comics in Australia, completely original and vastly absurd, he has one foot firmly planted into the soils of reality, and the other rooted deep into the psyche of being silly. A poetic and joyous exploration of the odd. This is the type of show that lets you forget about things like dandruff and car-parking fines, if only an hour or so. If you secretly hate basil and Goths, but like crumpets, seagulls, chutney and buttons that don’t match, then this is the show for you. Directed by Alan Brough (Spicks & Specks, ABC TV) “Verges on brilliance extremely enjoyable, funny, clever and mental” THE AGE “This truly is comedy at its absolute lunatic best” THE CHASER Feb Wed 22 – Mar Sun 19, Tue – Sat at 9.15pm $20 (Conc $18)
