Mullygrubs

Mullygrubs is a Fringe show that sits somewhere between the unsettling imagery of the puzzling, Adelaide-made, pre-schooler TV show from the 90s, Mulligrubs, and the definition of mulligrub, which means to complain or sulk or feel down. Performers Harry Thompson and...

The King

The King

We’ve seen these stereotypes before, the silver-tongued, middle-aged salesman, the timid husband who feels downtrodden, and the domineering wife, but in the hands of local playwright, Jimmy Lyons, they are equipped with wit and laser-focussed dialogue. The King...
