Sammy J and Randy in Ricketts Lane

Terrible Comfort heartily endorses this show:

Winner, Age Critics’ Award 2008 Melbourne Comedy Festival

Barry (Best Show) Nominee 2008 Melbourne Comedy Festival

Oh my gosh! It’s the brand new show from the creators of the smash-hit Sammy J in the
Forest of Dreams! Join Sammy J (skinny man) and Randy (purple puppet) as they navigate everyday life in a share house. Drive straight past Boringville, chuck a left on Goodtime Avenue, and you’ll find yourself in Ricketts Lane.

Sammy J and puppeteer Heath McIvor’s previous collaboration went on to win the hearts and minds of comedy audiences around the world. It was nominated for Best Show of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, scored five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe, and went on to sell-out seasons in London’s West End.

“Sammy J and Heath McIvor are fiendishly talented writers and performers.” The Scotsman

Directed by Alan Brough

Dispatch by Barking Spider Visual Theatre

Terrible Comfort heartily encourages you to go see this show:

“From nothingness we come, by nothingness we are sustained, to nothingness we return.”
Hindu philosophy

Dispatch is contemporary visual and puppet theatre at its most delightful. Beautifully created and performed by Penelope Bartlau from Barking Spider Visual Theatre, Dispatch is enthralling, ethereal and timeless.

A fascinating visual and theatrical poem, Dispatch follows puppet character ‘Sorrel’, a young girl who journeys alone in a leaky boat, arriving at “the Middle place“, a nowhere-land island in the middle of an ocean.
