Melburnalia No. 2
The captivating companion piece to White Whale Theatre’s acclaimed 2007 production Melburnalia…
Written by a new quintet of outstanding Melbourne writers – Andrea James, Hoa Pham, Danny Katz, Kit Lazaroo and Aidan Fennessy – these specially commissioned short works form a single theatrical journey through the decades, over the fences, under the awnings and into the collective psyche of our city.
Weaving civic history with urban myth Melburnalia No. 2 will take you on a rattling, screeching, ding-ding-dinging ride that reveals lost piggeries in the north; parental angst in the east; waiting exiles in the west; suburban symphonies in the south; and a forsaken magic hidden at the heart of it all.
