Shaman Productions and Poetry in Action

A big, black, tender-hearted comedy about love, loss and the mourning after.

Oscar has made a new life in the city, escaping the tragic shadow of his small town past. He has a fiancée, a new job, a fresh start.

Then a series of mysterious deaths calls him back to Bowengabbie, and the spate of bizarre festive funerals that follow. Is love bringing him back, or is something more sinister at play?

Written by award-winning playwright Caleb Lewis, directed by Matt Edgerton (Bell Shakespeare, Sport for Jove) and starring WAAPA graduate Bryce Youngman (Rake, Packed to the Rafters) in a powerhouse return to the Perth stage, this gently tragicomic tale will make you laugh, gasp and think fondly of home.

Winner – Judges’ Commendation for Best Writing,  Adelaide Fringe.

Praise for the production:

“Pick Of The Week” – The Australian

“Youngman is a delight to watch, a captivating and charismatic performer” – The AU Review

“Put it on your essential viewing list” – Adelaide Theatre Guide
