5 – 9 January 2021

November 23rd, 1963. The day after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, a young girl scout is killed in a suburban street while walking home. A B-list celebrity, a questionable counselor, a blue-collar worker and a housewife are taken to the local cop shop to await questioning. A character comedy in a groovy 1960’s dreamscape. Grab your prawn cocktails, sit back on your vinyl chair and welcome to purgatory!

RING, RING! expands on the concepts of isolation, purgatory, and “staying apart keeps us together” to present a piece that is socially distanced and intimate simultaneously. The audience is invited to join the characters in a wild romp through the darkest recesses of their mind as they try to navigate through their “new normal” and attempt to bring a sense of normalcy back into their lives. The show brings together an amalgamation of technologies including filmmaking, sound design and choreography, discarding traditional theatre practices to assist in dissecting the concepts of modern humanity and how we create intimacy in the digital world.
