Theatre Company: Mustard Seed Productions
Mustard Seed Productions presents ‘My Father’s Left Testicle’; a ballsy new comedy following a heroic, ragtag gang of refugees who in an alternate reality, flee their homeland of Australia and are processed through “Camp Assimilation.”
Inspired by the effervescent form of Commedia dell’Arte the play utilises slapstick, acrobatics and clowning to explore what it means to be Australian, a refugee and a human.
Daring to go to the darker side of comedy this play explores how nationality is a biological roulette by asking not which country, but testicle we all came from.
Using dark, satirical comedy, this play vehemently holds a mirror up to our Nation, by challenging Australians to come face to face with the stark reality of Detention Centres. Applying age old Theatrical principles, the piece takes a political stance against Australia’s refugee policies in an engaging and confronting way.
