Queer spectacle. Vegetable manipulation. Mess!
A dark comedy with bite! Fresh from sold out shows at Melbourne Fringe 2017, Madame Nightshade is back with her absurd games, twisted rituals and Tarantino-inspired anarchy.
In the dystopic world of the Poison Garden, vegetables are transformed into weapons, Snow White is a spring-onion wielding samurai and Mars Bars represent the sh*t of the world. This visceral comedy upends our own compost bin and rifles through the remains. “…will leave you stunned and flabbergasted.” Theatre Press, 2016.
Created and performed by Anna Thomson and directed by Sarah Ward (Yana Alana). Anna Thomson is a Melbourne-based clown, theatre-maker, and queer performer. She is a member of PO PO MO CO (Perth FRINGE WORLD 2017); Melbourne’s own rambunctious queer-comedy troupe.
