New Writing Theatre World Premiere Musical

A CABARET-COMEDY ABOARD A LUXURY CRUISE LINER

Welcome aboard the luxury cruise liner S.S. Metaphor! Sure, this glittering ode to freedom, adventure, and endless possibility is stuck at sea, but as top tier passengers you’ll be none the wiser about troubles back home... or even below deck! Just slip on a kaftan or linen slack, sip your mai tai and kick up your heels as the world-class cabaret duo Cruise Control croon your cares away. Remember—it’s all about you!

Writer, performer, and limbo champion Ash Flanders finally brings Zenya CarmellottiWill Conyers, and Natalie Gamsu down to his level in a medley of maritime mayhem directed by Sarah Giles in Malthouse Theatre’s premiere production on Malthouse Outdoor Stage.

All hands on deck! Because as you surely know by now—we’re all in this together.
