The return season of Antipodes Theatre Company’s inaugural production, Dave Malloy’s Ghost Quartet, runs through 20 November at Meat Market Stables in North Melbourne. Originally produced in August 2019, this production received rave reviews across the board and was nominated for two Green Room Awards.

Drawing inspiration from murder ballads and The Twilight Zone, Ghost Quartet elegantly blurs the line between a contemporary concept album and traditional musical theatre. Four musicians gather to drink whisky and share centuries-old stories about love, death, and betrayal, exposing mysterious and dangerous details from their own past along the way. Don’t miss this sleek and sinister song cycle where nothing is as it seems.

The cast of actor-musicians includes David Butler (Mad World: The Immersive Theatrical Experience), Hany Lee (StageArt’s Bare), Patrick Schnur (Once with Darlinghurst Theatre Company), and Willow Sizer (Death of a Demi Diva at Melbourne Cabaret Festival).

November 11 – 20 /
