What do you do when an online purchase goes wrong? This high energy show is one of the most unlikely but entertaining tales of taking on a scammer. Songs, multimedia and an enthralling story.


Winner: Directors' Choice Award, Sydney Comedy Festival (2021). Nominee: Most Outstanding Show, Melbourne International Comedy Festival (2021). Reform is a cautionary tale of an online scam and the urge to empathise with, understand, and become the emergency contacts of those who have done us wrong. A theatrical hour of storytelling and music, backed musically by Tim Lancaster and Jordan White. Maybe the real Facebook Marketplace is the friends we make along the way. 'Howlingly funny, emotionally generous and, ultimately, profound... A miracle of a show' ***** (Sydney Morning Herald). ***** (Time Out). ***** (Chortle.co.uk).
