Theatre Works and The Danger Ensemble present

Day After Terrible Day

by The Danger Ensemble

1 - 12 November

Based on the true story of South African born Sydney woman: Eliza Emily Donnithorne, jilted on her wedding day and found 30 years later still clad in her bridal gown - the wedding feast uneaten and mouldered to dust.

DAY AFTER TERRIBLE DAY is a new work by the award- winning contemporary theatre provocateurs, The Danger Ensemble that collides Aussie larrikinism with Victorian era restraint. It is a backyard bbq wedding, a parlour show, a decomposition time-lapse and a stillborn baby shower.

A mash up of theatrical forms examining the micro and macro of catastrophe and asks can we or how can we as individuals, families and societies rebuild our futures after significant destruction? A break up, a flood, the death of a lover, a nuclear explosion?


Patrons please note: The performances on Wed 2nd Nov and Fri 4th Nov will be photographed/filmed. Footage from these performances will be used for promotion.
