The Ballad of Backbone Joe (Australia)

Wednesday 18th October 2017

A hilariously daft and gruesome tale of a murder, set in a small country town, cooked up the way only The Suitcase Royale lads can.

This internationally acclaimed trio returns to New Zealand riding a murder ballad of junkyard theatre, visual trickery, dark humour and rag’n’bone live music.

“EVERY once in a while a show has the power to beguile its audience with the sheer breadth of its originality. They are superb.” THE SCOTSMAN

“Jules Verne meets The League of Gentlemen in this comic book of macabre characters come to life.” BROADWAYBABY.COM
