DEMONSTRATION ROOM, SUMMERHALL, EDINBURGH
A blistering punk theatre gig about our civil liberties and our capacity to resist – with an original soundtrack played live.
In Brisbane, Australia, 1979, Prehistoric follows Deb, Nick, Pete and Rachel as they meet at a gig, start a band, and find out – the hard way – why their town stays so quiet. Based on first-hand accounts of living, playing music, and making history under Queensland’s notoriously corrupt and brutal Bjelke-Petersen government, Prehistoric offers an iconoclastic and hilarious take on the pivotal ‘punk moment’ that still echoes today.
Winner of Best Performance award – Melbourne Fringe Festival
'Exhiliarating, gut-wrenching, evocative... leaves you giddy with excitement and feeling utterly alive.'
