Spoils Reviews

It’s gently, deceptively, oddly uplifting
Lloyd Bradford-Syke | Crikey

Director Carly Young has drawn on every inch of potential in the room to create lo-fi yet
lush imagery
Simon Binns | TimeOut Sydney

It’s entirely absurd and weirdly driven theatre that makes its own sense
Tim Lloyd | The Advertiser Adelaide

 I was definitely fully immersed in exactly what the Fringe should be about. This is raw art, by talented young creatives
Shona Benson | Limelight Magazine

Strange, bold, daring and just the type of new work the Fringe needs
Brian Godfrey | Adelaide Theatre Guide

White. Like being in a chlorine pool for too long and opening your eyes.

After a sell-out debut season in Sydney, re:group performance collective presents Spoils – a theatre work about the domestic, suburban and surreal. There are four characters. Louis is an artist, sometimes. Meg is his coach, most of the time. Finn is a man who cleans the wings of Dawn when she’s unsettled. Taking turns to negotiate the small sea of a bubbling bath tub, three pruny mortals and an angel play out a series of vignettes, positing their thoughts, fears, triumphs and encounters.

Conceived, co-written and directed by Carly Young
Co-written by Jackson Davis, Alexandra Francis, Ryan McGoldrick and Claire Stjepanovic
