Man with the Iron Neck

Written by Ursula Yovich, based on an original work by Josh Bond, Directed by Gavin Robins & Josh Bond.

With soaring aerial stunts this critically acclaimed work from Australia’s leading physical theatre company Legs On The Wall is a rollicking family tale of love, loss, resilience and hope.

Both heart-warming and heartbreaking we follow three young kids from the bush Ash Evelyn and Bear, and how two find survival and hope after the loss of one.

Directors Josh Bond and Gavin Robins weave Writer Ursula Yovich’s words with spectacular aerial wizardry, set, video and sound design, conjuring this bold, tender and truly moving work in a rich, at times hyperreal landscape.

“One of the most significant new works of theatre in this past decade.” Broadway World
