Poppy Seed Festival 2017

Poppy Seed Festival 2017

This year the festival features five outstanding works by new and emerging theatre makers that are bound to delight, inform, amuse, inspire, entertain and spark debate.

The 2017 program is the most diverse to be presented as part of Poppy Seed Theatre Festival and features five world premieres. The program includes writing by Daniel Keene, a lesbian musical rom-com, a co-production that explores a female autistic experience of the world, a warped retelling of the Hansel and Gretel fable and circus as an interactive performance game.

Poppy Seed Festival is a new vibrant boutique grass roots festival of theatre that captured the imagination of Melbournians in its début season in 2015.

To create the Poppy Seed Theatre Festival an artistic panel (made up of some of Australia's leading theatre professionals) selected four outstanding new theatrical works from a highly competitive selection process. The selected companies were provided with a venue funds and production support and told to go forth and create amazing work. This they have done and are now ready to share...

WE ARE SUPER EXCITED TO HAVE ANNOUNCED THE PROGRAM FOR POPPY SEED 2017. TICKETS ARE ON SALE NOW AND ARE SELLING FAST!
