Sick of a society

of Twitter and trolls,

anger and argument?

Marguerite has the cure.
It’s her new show –
Simple Souls.

It’s fun.

It’s friendly.


And it’s about to get her into serious shit.

But this woman won’t be silenced.

A joyous comedy from the writer of Cristina in the Cupboard.


In 2013 subtlenuance conjured a world of

comic magical realism with their hit production

Cristina in the Cupboard.


“a timeless work that speaks with intellectual and emotional clarity,

and should be staged every place there is a thinking audience" 

Suzy Goes See


With Simple Souls, we return to this evocative genre,

presenting a thrilling new production

as funny as it is thought-provoking.



Simple Souls - a comedy about the wisdom of stupidity



 Seed Bomb is a play for 2019 Sydney”

Weekend Notes

"Make sure you don't miss it"

Lisa Thatcher Reviews

Let a thousand flowers boom!


Kat hates the city.

She dreams of moving to the country and living quietly ever after.

Then, one night, she collides with a bike-riding anarchist guerrilla gardener.


Carrying a load of seed bombs, his mission is

to transform vacant lots into food forests and flower beds.

Seduced by these urban warriors,

Kat joins their clandestine adventures,

and as they turn chain link fences into living salads,

verges into veggie gardens,

and the local golf course into a common,

the seeds of her own awakening explode into life.

Seed Bomb is an hilarious comedy

for everyone who dreams a better world might be about to bloom.
