Beast Of Hoof And Trunk!

(Second Platform)




Written, directed and co-performed by Tar Pit head honcho and controversial mogul Peter Reid, featuring artists new and familiar with tar – this show, based on a great tale from Melbournes secret past – has been over 18 months in development, features original live music, uniquely stylized acting, superbly sculptured set pieces, and much much more!

‘No one could ever make a show about the day many years ago – when an elephant rampaged through Melbournes Flinders Street Station!!’ they said. Well, four chaps have now come forward – claiming not only that they’ve done just that – but that they were there when it happened and are in fact recreating this amazing event. ‘In 2009, the group spent a week in the stations fabled ballroom & clock-tower areas, with purpose to making this performance.

Those in the know will be familiar with the circumstances surrounding this event: how the stations blueprints were switched round with the train station blueprints for Mumbai. Thus it was that the beast was to visit from the north, to play in the elevator designed for it’s impressive proportions!
