Our Melbourne theatre brethren from Feat in Space Theatre head up to present a double bill of works by Gareth Ellis.

An absurd, dark, sci-fi comedy, Receivers explores the world of idealistic farmer Hedrick who, after years at agricultural school, simply cannot make things grow. In a final attempt to save his property from ruin he stumbles into a world populated with a prostitute, a General, a television repair man, an unforgiving computer... and Hillary. Or does he? Welcome to Latin 4 space platform.

From the pen of Wal Cherry Award and Malcolm Robertson Prize winning playwright Gareth Ellis, this fabulous black comedy is paired with Ellis' new short play The Piano Thief in a special co-production with Feat in Space Theatre Company, Melbourne.

Written by: Gareth Ellis

Directed by: Amanda Falson (Receivers) and Gareth Ellis (The Piano Thief)

With: Mark Tregonning, Tom Milton, Mathew Young, Eva Torkkola, Sophie Kelly
