Lachlan Philpott’s violent, poetic and theatrical Silent Disco is an amazing play. It also has an amazing title. A title so good that one day a man read Philpott’s captivating and inspiring play, sat down on a rock with his head in his hands and the brilliance that is the silent disco was born*.
Come join Griffin and Australian Theatre for Young People at one of the hottest venues around for an amazing night of dancing, partying, fun and wonder. Have a drink, have a dance, take off your headphones and have a chat. Or have a chat with them on if that’s what you’re into, we don’t mind, we just want you to have fun. Or you could all three at once, or have one headphone on and the other off, oh look the possibilities are endless.
With acts starting at eight and running til whenever we want/when they tell us to stop, and two decks running all night, there will be an overload of amazing music mixed by some of the best people around.
Winner of the 2009 Griffin Award, Silent Disco is also worth getting off to see. A vibrant look into a world of absent mothers and missing absent-minded fathers and Speds and Bitches. The play is a fun, daring and insightful look into youth in Australia and is just a pretty sexy-great way to spend an hour. It’s a thing.
SAVE MONEY and get the pack to see both Silent Disco and go crazy at Silent. Disco. Shut Up. Dance for only $30. Amazing, I know right?
