The Book of Life

The Blue Room Theatre Summer Nights & Renegade Productions, as part of Fringe World 2017, present

THE BOOK OF LIFE

Chaos. Death. Dinosaurs. Lulz.

31 January - 4 February | 9.30pm
Studio Underground, State Theatre Centre of WA

Lily, a precocious, petulant teenager listening to garbage on her headphones,

has found herself on a boat on the Styx with a quest to save the world.

Guided by the boatman Charon, Lily must journey toward the god of the underworld – who has abandoned the world to its own depredations – and hold him to account. Along the way, she meets monsters of the Stygian deep – prehistoric creatures from her family – from whom she must gain help for her quest.

Scored by a soundtrack rooted in the Southern Gothic, The Book of Life is a musical journey through the history of life itself. What answers will she find? What insights will she gain? Will any of it make any sense? Why are there dinosaurs in Hades? What is a petulant teenager listening to garbage on her headphones doing with Charon?

...these are precisely the sort of questions The Book of Life will answer.

31 January - 4 February | 9.30pm
Studio Underground, State Theatre Centre of WA
