The Musical

Written and Directed by Hannah and Eliza Reilly

  • Venue Downstairs Theatre
  • Dates 25 July – 12 Aug 2018

    Welcome to Yarramadoon. A semi-rural town just off the M5, with by far the highest rate of both teen pregnancy and sinkholes in Australia. Set in history’s most awkward decade, the 2000s, when jean shorts were at their baggiest, there’s nothing for 16-year-old Shelly to do but wait for the internet to dial up and dream of a bigger life outside her shitty town.

    She fantasises of a job making frappuccinos in the big smoke, a sweet boyfriend with frosted tips, and one day owning a flip phone. But while waiting for the only bus out of town, a local old man tries to convince her to stay, by revealing the true and magical history of Yarramadoon.
