RUNT – a play about the runts of the world: the lesser, the unwanted, the weak, those without clout, the insignificant.


Short Reviews

Runt is far and above the best theatre of the year to date.
Australian Arts Review, 2021
This is a spectacular production which is as striking as it is raw. The magnificent delivery of this text creates a unique ability to effectively draw audience members into what is usually perceived as an alien world and a completely foreign psyche.
Patricia Di Risio Stage Whispers, 2021
