“MARVELLOUS MEDLEY POKES FUN AT THE CLASSICS” The Age

Oedipus Schmoedipus takes dozens of the great theatre classics, picks out the death scenes, mixes them together and hands them back to the people in one bloody mess.

Created by Australia’s silliest and smartest performance makers, this is clever theatre with an outrageous sense of humour. The ladies of theatre company post have pirated the classics in order to confront the great unknown, with the help of 25 brave souls joining them on stage – a new volunteer cast rehearsed fresh for each performance. It’s joyful and dark, stupid and smart, hilarious and confronting – there’s nothing quite like it.

In spite of the mayhem, Oedipus Schmoedipus asks some serious questions, about the Western canon, theatre, and who watches it anyway.

Post’s deep irreverence for the institution of theatre has amused, bemused and probably annoyed audiences for years.

Stay tuned to hear how you can be a part of it!

“Brilliant… shockingly funny to watch.” The Australian
