Savaged family relationships

Written and Performed by Thomas Campbell, Directed by Kate Gaul. Produced by Siren Theatre Co.

Five characters, five reasons to live, an odyssey towards death. A collage of memory, these characters jostle for existence in a theatrical phantasmagoria filled with dark humour, pathos and unsettling personal narrative. 

Content warning: adult themes, drug use, course language.
