Oh No! Satan Stole My Pineal Gland!
Anyway, Hail Satan.
"Anyway, I was in bed and Satan was playing the violin."
Your friendly neighbourhood Satanists gather. They just want to have a chat – no, seriously. It’s hard making friends in the 21st century, but this is a judgment-free space.
Kirby Medway could definitely almost be Australia’s most absurd playwright. His Melbourne debut is an ode to every awkward, hellish conversation you’ve ever endured to make 1x friend in an increasingly bewildering and segregated world.
Human connections are tough, so go on – make a deal with the devil.
Warning: Contains mild coarse language, both sudden and sustained loud noises
