About the show

A scientist dissects a brain. A man has a secret. A woman wants an affair. A child cannot feel pain. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone is her sibling's mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone’s never felt like this before. Through sex, death, feeling, thinking, taxidermy and karaoke they discover each other.

For many, Caryl Churchill is the world’s greatest living playwright. This contemporary masterpiece asks how our insatiable appetite for knowledge can be informed by our capacity for love.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which we learn and tell stories, from the lands of the Bidjigal and Gadigal people of the Eora nation where our campus stands, to the nations across this continent where we teach. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders past and present who have cared for land, water and story on these lands for generations. We also recognise the work and strength of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, workers and creatives within the NIDA Community. Sovereignty was never ceded. Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
