A high-energy fairy tale adventure played on a set of milk-crates, bedsheets, and newspaper swords, using original music and comedy to question the role empathy plays in decision making. Switch has left audiences laughing and singing along from Sydney to Edinburgh.
Switch Witchetty is a court fool who can "switch" into others, allowing a unique perspective into their story. When the Kingdom needs a leader, 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?
