In the first installment of their live movie trilogy, multi-award winning comedy trio Sleeping Trees deliver their version of every gangster film they’ve ever seen; Mafia?. Expect casinos, operas and bloodshed, as the Banucci brothers find themselves in a situation stickier than most luxury cakes.

The Sleeping Trees bring to life a world of crime and corruption in a way you have never seen before, complete with an unrelenting live score and the most mesmerising gangster kitten you’re ever likely to see.

“You can almost visualise the blood splattering across the prison showers.”
★★★★ Fringe Guru

“A blockbuster hour of cleverly scripted fast laughs and energetic comedy.”
★★★★ The List


9pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and 7.30pm on Friday

You’ve seen Mafia?, you’re yet to see Sci-Fi?, what better show to see next than the one in the middle, Western? This time the Sleeping Trees find themselves slowly crisping under the sun of the Wild West, as gun slinger Harry Sudds takes on bulls, scorpions and many other animals largely found in America.

With another live score performed by the handsome and ever mysterious Ben Hales, the Sleeping Trees stamp their fast, physical and surreal brand of comedy onto one of the most revered film genres of all time.

“The lovechild of Monty Python and the League of Gentlemen.”
★★★★ Time Out

“With a script that steers left field of convention and indulges every whim, Sleeping Trees have created a lawless comedic style of their own.”
★★★★★ Broadway Baby


9pm on Thursday, Friday

All good trilogies must come to an end, and Sleeping Trees boldly choose to end their movie trilogy with the third show in the series, Sci-Fi?. At a time where ancient planet Plutopia rules the galaxy, farmer Charlie Sprog is dragged from his quiet home planet and given one simple mission: SAVE THE UNIVERSE FROM TOTAL DESTRUCTION.

Accompanied by an inter-cosmic and highly sensual musical score, the Sleeping Trees invite you to join them on a journey into the deep and infinite unknown. So strap on your helmets, jump into your spacesuits, complete the necessary six years of training required by NASA to fly into space and THEN, grab yourself a ticket!

“Another physically elastic, impeccably scored and endlessly energetic trawl through genre’s murky waters.”
★★★★ Fest

“A company set to rocket to stardom.”
★★★★★ Three Weeks
