Loud, politically active, queer, brash – multi-award-winning, Australian comedian, singer and writer Reuben Kaye returns to Malthouse with this brand-new epic work APOCALIPSTIK

Part eulogy, part elegy, part Eastern Bloc Dog Day Afternoon, this scandalous story of Reuben’s scoundrel Uncle springboards into a cabaret that crosses continents, generations and the political spectrum of the 20th?century.

‘He is quite simply magnificent, born to perform and possessed of such utterly innate charisma.’ 5 STARS ArtsHub
