Tidal Pools

By Sean Munro

22 – 31 March 2012
Theatre Royal Backspace

Clever, engaging and finely-orchestrated ... offering natural, strong and funny performances.
— Anica Boulanger-Mashberg, The Mercury

2011 marks the tenth anniversary of The War on Terror. To commemorate the occasion Blue Cow Theatre proudly presents Sean Monro’s Tidal Pools, a disturbing and disarmingly humorous response to that epoch-making event.

By turns dangerous and funny, sincere and absurd, Tidal Pools offers a glimpse of contemporary Australia from two strikingly different perspective: an adult world of politics and brutal ambition, and a child’s world of innocence and whimsy. In each, the stakes are high.
