Theatre

The Forwards

written and directed by Stefo Nantsou

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse, Shock Therapy Productions and Zeal Theatre

Two award winning companies join forces for this high energy, raw and hard hitting show that combines physical theatre, live music, multiple characters and an “in your face” story telling style.

Five actors take the audience through a whirlwind of emotions, as the show follows the story of a small town called “Pintoon” where nothing ever happens…. except the footy!

This dynamic piece of theatre delves into the pressures facing young sportspeople, a culture of binge drinking, racing cars and small town rivalries and promises to have you spellbound from beginning to end.

The City of Gold Coast is a major sponsor of Shock Therapy Productions through the Triennial Accelerated Fund
