About this event

A high-energy adventure filled with music, mayhem, and ordinary bedsheets, straight from the Edinburgh Fringe. Switch Witchetty is a court fool who can 'switch' into others, allowing a unique perspective into their story. When the Kingdom needs a new King, Switch is forced to use this ability, writing the stories of the people in The Almanac of Everything. Before the two kings tear the kingdom apart, Switch must choose - hero or fool? Switch is a parabolic folk tale combining makeshift design and original music to question the role empathy plays in decision making, and addressing resource management, gender roles, class divide, privilege, corporate greed, and integrity.

Presented by:
Pinwheel Productions

Based in Sydney, Pinwheel Productions is an emerging independent theatre company building a reputation for creating parabolic adventure stories.

Collaborating closely with up and coming and established artists, Pinwheel Productions are inspired by the stories kids make for themselves. Makeshift design, limitless imagination, and original music tell socially relevant modern fairytales and folklore for children.

Productions include The Tale of Ichabod Scrubb (Sydney 2017), and Switch Witchetty's Almanac of Everything (Ed Fringe 2019).
