Set in a Melbourne no longer recognisable, four characters speak from different points in time, their stories overlapping and interweaving with tantalising uncertainty. As we piece together their fragmented lives, what’s revealed is an Australia being torn apart by violence, desire and genetically modified indigenous berries.

From playwright Ben Ellis, winner of both the Malcolm Robertson Prize and the Patrick White Playwrights' Award comes a piece of post-apocalyptic poetry posing as a play.

Performed as a solo piece by Damien Warren-Smith (the man behind Fringe favourite Garry Starr).
