      MAN WITH THE IRON NECK

      Written by Ursula Yovich from an original work by Josh Bond, Directed by Josh Bond and Gavin Robins

      A powerful new work from one of Australia’s leading physical theatre companies, about an Australian small town family finding hope and embracing life after grief.

      When Ash loses his best friend Bear to suicide, he starts to idolise Vaudevillian stuntman The Great Peters, and Peters’ ability to jump from bridges with a rope around his neck and survive. Ultimately the fabled stuntman’s death proves to Ash the trick is just that - an impossible dream to follow, waking him from a haze of grief to find his own path to survival.

      Based on an original work by Josh Bond, written by national treasure actor/singer/writer Ursula Yovich, together Gavin Robins and Josh Bond direct this incredible cast of rising star Indigenous performers. Man With The Iron Neck interweaves extraordinary aerial and physical feats with a beautifully written narrative, which entraps us in its tender and intimate world, while at the same time conjuring a rich epic and some times hyperreal landscape with its visual design.

      Both heart-warming and heart-breaking this touching story is about choosing to embrace life and find hope through grief. The morning star comes to signal that even at your darkest hour, there is hope.
      This work contains adult themes and references to suicide that may be distressing to some audience members.
