Access Notes

The show does not have strobe lighting. Camera or other flash is also discouraged, primarily due to cast members' light sensitivity.

There may be sudden sounds, but they are connected to on-stage action and are not intended as jump scares.

There is some audience participation, most of which can be performed without the audience member leaving their seat. At the very most, the audience member may be asked to come to or near the stage. Their involvement is simple, does not involve much physical activity, and they are free to refuse at any time. Only audience members that affirmatively consent to participate will be chosen to do so.

There will be Auslan interpretation for one night of the Melbourne Fringe 2018 season. Auslan will also be looked into for any future seasons of the full show. Performances of excerpts in other settings, such as variety cabarets, may or may not have sign language interpretation depending on the plans of the original producer.

The show is not rated as a relaxed performance. There may be plans for relaxed versions in the future.

The show is primarily in English. There are a few terms in other languages, some of which are immediately translated into English (or whose meaning can be gleaned from context), as well as a few South Asian names mentioned.
