Season. 11th - 26th November (no show Sun/Mon)
Time. 8pm

Tickets. $18 full / $12 concession A giant 4 metre HEAD is stuck on stage. He's a no-body. He cannot move or fit through the exit door. He cannot leave. This funny and absurd situation takes you on a journey inside the HEAD'S head which asks- What is truth? What is reality? And who the hell is that voice in my HEAD.

HEAD is actually an illusion, which is very funny and sometimes sad.
HEAD combines vaudeville with high technology.
HEAD wants to know why it is always the innocent that suffer and the bigheads that win?
HEAD doesn't want you to think too much about anything - or you might get a sore HEAD
HEAD is physical theatre by people with no-bodies
