Simon's Final Sound

By Finegan Kruckemeyer


A comedy of people who try and fail, try again, and fail better.

Four people on a boat. There’s Simon, an unemployed dreamer with dodgy hearing. Michael, with his grey suit, grey sandwiches and grey life, and his wife Ginny, frustrated and craving excitement. And there’s Claude. Claude. Think of the loudest, most annoying person you know, and triple it. That’s Claude. And they are all stuck together on a boat, looking for an island that may or may not exist.

Simon’s Final Sound is an adult comedy by the prolific and multi-award winning Australian playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer.
