“To invent, all you need is a pile of junk and a good imagination” – Thomas Edison
The highly acclaimed Flying Fruit Fly Circus return with their latest smash-hit show set amongst a 1940s rural junkyard. Transforming trash into magical landscapes, JUNK takes you on a journey back to a time when the neighbourhood street was a playground full of adventure and make-believe.
Exploring the question “in this day and age, do we overprotect our kids?” JUNK tells the story of a modern-day boy finding himself in an abandoned junkyard inhabited by the spirits of children from the 1940s. They teach him to play, trust, invent and take risks.
Inspired by childhood stories recorded with elderly residents of regional Australia, the young artists of JUNK will take your breath away with jaw-dropping acrobatics, magical shadow puppetry and world-class circus skills for the whole family.

A relaxed performance is one that has been modified slightly to make the experience enjoyable for those with special needs and their families or carers. Theatre is for everyone!
To make your experience enjoyable, calm and relaxed this performance will have:
• Lower sound levels
• A designated ‘chill out’ zone in the foyer if you need to take a moment out.
• Feel free to move around the auditorium and make noise – we love hearing people enjoy themselves!
• Houselights on at all time so there is never complete darkness.
