It Just Stopped

By Stephen Sewell

01 April 2006 – 23 April 2006 Merlyn Theatre

Malthouse Theatre, Company B Belvoir,

Theatre Co-Production

A savage comedy of manners, the play examines our relationship to art, globalisation, death, technology, America, Campari, cardboard boxes and slavery. It holds the mirror up to the things we value today and asks the questions: what will we value the day the world just stops? and what would we be willing to trade for our own survival?

Toured to Belvoir St later in 2006 (30 September - 5 November).
