Synopsis

Liz and Ben have been mates with Cynthia and Evan for years, and would never let anything get in the way of their friendship. Except, when both couples set their sights on buying the same house – that’s different. Forget friendship, forget respect, forget human decency: this is the Australian property market. Not even the imminent collapse of civilisation itself could stop the zombie-like single-mindedness of buying the perfect house.

In his previous play commissioned by MTC, The Beast, Eddie Perfect created a living nightmare out of middle-class aspirations. Set against an impending apocalypse, Vivid White goes even further with an all-star cast, outrageous songs and epic puppetry, turning our national obsession with home ownership, renovations and soft close drawers into a hilarious battle of life or death.

Directed by Dean Bryant (I’ll Eat You Last), Vivid White stars Brent Hill (Little Shop of Horrors), Verity Hunt-Ballard (Mary Poppins), Virginia Gay (Winners and Losers), Gillian Cosgriff (The Pirates of Penzance), Keegan Joyce (Rake), Christina O’Neill (Gaybies) and Ben Mingay (Wonderland), alongside a chorus ensemble of VCA Music Theatre students.
