Malthouse Theatre, Strut & Fret and Men of Steel present
HARD RUBBISH

12 September - 6 October

It’s tough to compete with a slender, blonde Scandinavian!

The furniture gets furious in this new show for the whole family from the award-winning Men of Steel. Soon to be replaced by Swedish flat-packs armed with allen keys, a pile of unloved old furniture learns it’s destined for the council tip. As the hour of their removal approaches, the hard rubbish comes out swinging against their Nordic counterparts. With wrestling armchairs and pirate toilets, this will be a battle for the ages!

Bringing new meaning to the term ‘moving house’, these wildly inventive object puppeteers will have the young, and young at heart, rethinking the most ordinary household objects.

A tale of reusing and recycling, Hard Rubbish playfully questions our 21st Century habit of acquiring shiny new item after the latest toy. With a little creativity there might be more life in our old goods yet!

Bring the kids! Suitable for ages 5 to 105.

Original Concept Men of Steel
