In June 1960, travelling salesman Bazil Thorne won 100,000 pounds in the Opera House Lottery.

Five weeks later jubilation turned to tragedy when Bazil’s eight-year-old son Graeme was kidnapped and held to ransom.

On 16 August, 1960, Graeme’s body was found in bushland at Seaforth.

Gods and Little Fishes is loosely based on this tragic event. Rather than a factual retelling, this magical play interprets the story through the lens of a father’s overwhelming grief and a child’s imagination.

The delightful humour, quirky characters and theatrical in-jokes lead to a shattering climax that will leave you breathless.

Winner of the Silver Gull Play Award, 2020
