A stellar cast of local actors will perform Survival Instincts, the award-winning Short & Sweet play that resonated with audiences around Australia in 2010. The event is a world first theatrical treat to mark the launch of the Veranda Theatre Co on 25 July, 2020. Fittingly, the play will be performed on the veranda at my home in Freshwater, Cairns. Here’s a glimpse of what’s in store for the audience.
During lock down, people went to drastic measures to survive, even enlisting frogs to protect their toilet paper supply. In Survival Instincts teacher Rose Black pulls out all stops to survive the jungle of the classroom.

Meet Andy Cracker. He’s a 15 year old with body odour and a careless disregard for authority but underneath he’s trying to survive too. He’ll make you laugh, cringe and sometimes feel just a bit sad.
