Penny Plain heads down under
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. Fascinating topic indeed and it's all part of a touring production of Penny Plain by Ronnie Burkett's Theatre of Marionettes, who will be coming, once again, to Australia. The production at the Arts Centre in Melbourne will run from 8 - 18 August 2013. For bookings, please go to the Arts Centre, Melbourne, here! You can view more of Penny Plain here and here!
