Theatre Works Presents

Unsorted

By Wesley Middleton | Directed by Tara Daniel

27 September - 1 October

Unsorted is a wildly energetic kids’ show, in which creatures made from clothing, led by the dictatorial Jacket, try to sort themselves out.

Unsorted is wildly energetic physical theatre and comedy for kids, set in the fantastical world of the Clothings. Self-appointed leader, Jacket, orders everyone to sort themselves out, but Skirt and friends would rather hang out together and have fun.

Unsorted questions gender stereotypes in clothing and celebrates everyone’s right to identity, inclusion and belonging.

The Unsorted cast and crew are a glorious group of mainly Melbourne-based, trans, non-binary, queer and neurodiverse folks who are eager to return to the stage after the Melbourne lockdowns of the past couple of years.

“I took the kids to see this amazing family production of ‘Unsorted’ on the weekend. I loved it because unlike so many family shows it didn’t talk down to my children. It was discussion provoking and the chats home in the car were insightful and revelatory. My child said, ‘the problem isn’t putting people in categories, it is saying that because of their category they can’t do or be something else.’ A talented cast and directed by the phenomenal Tara Daniel. If you are looking for something special to finish off your school holidays or start the term off, I highly recommend you book today!”
