Attic Erratic in 2016

2015 was a big year for Attic Erratic – our second major international arts festival with The City They Burned touring nine actors up to participate in Brisbane Festival, along with our first major international tour, with Tripped, Centred: A One Clown Comedy About Stuff and Angus Brown's Get Ready Get Set Ahhh F*%k It all heading over for the chaos and fun of Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

To be honest, we are still catching our breath from stepping up our game to this extent, but we kicked off 2016 with a remount of 2014’s stunning co-production Purgatorio at Fringe World Perth, followed by a return Melbourne season as part of a double bill with Citizen Theatre’s Crestfall.

But most excitingly we have coming up the world premiere of Fleur Kilpatrick’s award winning work Blessed, at the Tower Theatre, Malthouse this November as part of the second Poppy Seed Festival, hope to see you all there!

People We Like


Sarah Walker Photography

Talented theatre and events photographer (as well as long-time Attic Erratic creative), we are lucky enough to have Sarah as the official Attic Erratic photographer for our promotional and production material. If you've seen a good promotional photo in the Melbourne indie scene, there's a 98% chance Sarah Walker took it.


White Noise Children

Headed up by our friend the talented Tom Doman, White Noise Children is our video production house of choice - show filming, promotional videos and he does artistic shit too.


The Harlots

When Attic Erratic wants to make some noise we turn to the Harlots front man (and Attic Erratic founding member) Tom Pitts. When we want to let our hair down these guys are rocking out in front of us.


Twin Beasts

Attic Erratic founding member Giuliano Ferla isn't just a talented playwright (Domino, 2013; Ad Infinitum, 2011), he also fronts high energy indie rock ensemble Twin Beasts; another of Attic Erratic's favourite nights out.


5pound Theatre

Our good friends and co-pro partners for Purgatorio, these guys create great theatre based out of their Richmond theatre venue The Owl and the Pussycat

Blessed

In a shitty flat sit two shitty people, shitty lives hanging out all over the place.

And something is moving in the cosmos. Fate or God or some such shit.

The world needs saving, someone to switch the power back on and light up the whole fucking mess.

About the show

A brutal, epic and incredibly human love story, Blessed openly and candidly presents something that few people want to talk about: the anger, helplessness, fear and lack of control felt by those who were never really given a choice.

Told through a fractured timeline, Blessed follows two familiar strangers so entangled, dark and claustrophobic that nothing in this world could lift them out of their current situation. It is about the struggle to rise above a birthright of poor education, community housing and low paid jobs that bring in just enough to stay alive, but not enough to live on. But it is also a story of dreaming beyond your front door and hoping for something more.

As hope and pessimism collide, and dreams remain out of reach, Blessed asks the question: where does love end in the face of much larger responsibilities?

Shortlisted for the Max Afford Playwrights’ Award (Playwriting Australia) and recipient of the Jill Blewett Playwright’s Award (Adelaide Festival), Blessed is the fourth collaboration between writer Fleur Kilpatrick and director and producer Danny Delahunty (previous works together include: The City They Burned, Skinhouse and Insomnia Cat Came to Stay).
