Arts Centre Melbourne presents
Ronnie Burkett Theatre of Marionettes in Penny Plain
“An apocalyptic ‘what if?’ fantasy from a master of his craft… brilliant, beautiful and painful…a ferocious production unafraid to challenge you” Vue Weekly, Canada
Due to overwhelming demand, new slightly partial view C-Reserve seats have just been released for $49 Saturday 17 August!
World-renowned master of marionettes, Ronnie Burkett returns to Melbourne with his beautifully dark apocalyptic comedy, Penny Plain.
From her overstuffed chair, Penny Plain sits listening to the news of civilization’s inevitable end. When her companion dog Geoffrey leaves to live as a man, Penny’s end-of-days vigil is interrupted by survivalists, a serial killer, a cross-dressing banker, talking dogs and mysterious strangers, all seeking sanctuary from mother earth as she begins reclaiming her ground. Penny Plain may be blind, but she hears a lot about the fate of mankind.
Ronnie Burkett has produced some of the world’s most elaborate adult puppetry, performing sell-out seasons in Melbourne for over ten years.
