The Suitcase Series / Atomic

24 Oct - 13 Nov 2018


Malthouse Theatre 24 Oct – 2 Nov * SOLD OUT*

Students on camp imagine the world they’d like to live in. A man invents a drug that will save millions of people, sowing the seeds of a population explosion. A flower sees plastic for the first time. A kaleidoscope of absurd and poignant vignettes, ATOMIC explores the power of humans to change the world – knowingly and unknowingly, for better or worse.
