About this event

The WA homegrown smash hit is back, bigger and better than ever! 

This year we are taking on King Lear.

We find our tale at Fremantle Cicerello’s. A cheeky fisherman’s basket is the order of the day but what might be found within that basket? A disingenuous bit of fried fish? A portion of selfish chips? A scheming set of squid rings? A delicious grab stick… of murder! After working to build a fish and chip empire King Lear seeks only what any of us would, a day off. He intends to retire and leave his empire to his daughters. But whom is best suited? Who is most deserving? Who can handle those god damn seagulls?

“This show is not only hilarious but also insanely clever." ★★★★★ Fringefeed

“A perennial Fringe World powerhouse." ★★★★☆ Seesaw Mag
