Chronicles of a Sleepless Moon by The Suitcase Royale

Melbourne’s own purveyors of junkyard theatre, The Suitcase Royale, present a tale of dastardly deeds and unfathomable adventure. The Butcher and the Doctor are up to something, and the Newsman sniffs a story that will take him deep into the dead heart of Australia. Deliciously dark and exquisitely crafted, Chronicles of a Sleepless Moon is a funny, sad and surreal fairy tale for grown-ups.

Inspired by 1920’s radio, backyard invention, and the unique dark setting of the middle of Australia; Joseph O’Farrell, Glen Walton and Miles O’Neil bring to the stage a surreal, fortuitous, adventure that crosses artforms and genres to tell the epic tale of a Butcher, a Newsman and a Mad doctor. 

"If Dr Frankenstein had lent his skills to the performing arts, this is what might have resulted."  - The Age

“Tom Waits meets the Mighty Boosh in this piece of 24-carat entertainment.” - The Guardian, London

Strange noises are coming from the top of Roogs Hill, a plan to go underground is afoot, and on top of all this, all the cows in the district have started to disappear.
