ABOUT THE SHOW

Big Dreams. Bigger Doubts. Big Yikes!

Meet Lorrie. Sorry… Loxie. Loxie is cooler. She’s rebranding so as not to be mistaken with a load bearing truck. She wouldn’t want you to know that – she doesn’t like being ‘perceived’.

Loxie is leaving school, starting her first job, moving out of home and waiting for Uni offers — She’s entering her adulting era. ‘Finding yourself’ is hard when you’re searching from a rundown share house, in a situationship you THINK you have with your coworker, and under the constant nagging of your divorced parents.

Big Yikes! is a coming-of-age story that explores boundaries, decision making and autonomy, while asking the big questions like “what is my purpose?”, “what should I do with my life?” and “why does my housemate leave lentils in the fridge to rot?”

There will be a Q&A with the artists in the theatre following the THU 14 MAR performance. All patrons are invited to join.

There is a full lockout for this performance and latecomers will not be permitted.
