Internationally acclaimed trio The Suitcase Royale are coming to town riding a whisky-soaked murder ballad of visual trickery, dark humour and rag‘n’bone live music. Experience this award-winning Australian trio and their unique use of music, puppetry, slapstick and a full set of found objects to create a self-styled form of junkyard theatre.

The Ballad of Backbone Joe tells a hilariously daft and gruesome tale of a murder set in a small country town. Undefeated bare-knuckle boxer Backbone Joe has a right hook “as quick as a spun tea-bag” but repeated blows to the head have left him a bit slow to process details. Like, did he really kill his wife by throwing her off a bridge?

“Every once in a while, a show has the power to beguile its audience with the sheer breadth of its originality. They are superb, four stars”
