      People Suck
      By Megan Phillips and Peter Cavell

      Jerks, morons, flakes. Let’s face it. People suck.

      Winner of Best of Toronto Fringe and Patron’s Pick, this irreverent, hilarious and all-too-relatable musical comedy explores the many, many ways in which people are just THE WORST. Following rave reviews from its Australian Premiere, this intimate musical remains a not-so-gentle reminder to be ever vigilant and learn to be better human beings, one day at a time.

      Written by award-winning Canadian team Megan Phillips and Peter Cavell, People Suck is a 90 minute musical feast of family favourites such as When I See You Smile (I Want to Kill You), Who Sucks Worse, and Where the Hell is Darwin When You Need Him.

      Running this November as a part of the Theatre Works Chapter Three program, People Suck is a must see slice of musical comedy on the Melbourne musical theatre arts calendar.

      A recent addition to our arts landscape, Melbourne-based Salty Theatre is dedicated to bringing never before seen musicals and plays to Australia. Co-founded by Melbourne theatre, dance and cabaret veteran Sarah Louise Younger and Canadian theatre and screen vet Ashley Taylor, they work directly with new writers, directors, producers and performers to form solid, tangible connections with creatives across the globe.

      This production is proudly supported by Theatre Works.
