Sly Rat Theatre Company

Mixing brand new Australian writing with rock and roll versions of the classics, Sly Rat Theatre Co. makes theatre that smashes together spectacle, whizz-bang special-effects, explosions, and poetry! Theatre that makes you laugh, squeal, cringe, and guffaw!

 

Emerging out of a deep respect for the cunning of rats, a love of theatre and curated by a nest of pretty roguish folk … Sly Rat Theatre was born, kickin' and squeakin' in 2012. Since that auspicious date, the company has taken its unorthodox style to a gaggle of theatre venues across the fair cities of Melbourne and Sydney. They'll play in warehouses, parks, cabaret halls ... wherever inspires, wherever opens up theatre to a new audience.
