Josh Thomas – Let’s Tidy Up (MICF) [Melbourne]

Thursday April 18, 2024 Arts Centre Melbourne, Melbourne VIC, Australia

Peacemongers (Darebin Arts) [Preston, VIC]

Thursday May 2, 2024 Darebin Arts Centre, Melbourne Victoria, Australia

Peacemongers is a real-life attempt at utopia. It’s documentary theatre at its most absurd, and an act of rebellious and delusional hope.
